Oatmeal “cookie” Breakfast

Just imagine, you wake up to a cool fall morning. You’re house thermostat was set to 65 degrees Fahrenheit for good sleep, but as you wake up, all you want is to stay in warm cozy bed. This is my family EVERY morning until Summer comes. Enter… my Oatmeal “cookie” Breakfast (If you want something more portable, check out my Versatile Snack Bars.

Like most of you I’m sure, I grew up eating oatmeal. But honestly, I grew up eating my oatmeal like this. So when I met my husband, we wasn’t a huge fan of oatmeal, but he only knew it as the simplest version possible. So when I made oatmeal for the first time, he laughed and said,”No wonder you love oatmeal, it’s really a glorified cookie in cereal form.” Well, of course!

Now, my oldest usually makes the oatmeal and they change up the recipe all the time. They’ll put chocolate chips, walnuts, craisins (those are dried cranberries by the way), even a chopped apple. The best thing about oat is it’s versatility. But today, I’m going to share my original recipe.

Enjoy!
