No More Boring Oatmeal! My favorite oatmeal recipes


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

There’s one cookie that I can’t refuse: chocolate chip.  Now you can have the tempting dessert in the morning for breakfast.  Score!



1 ½ cups water

½ cup old fashioned oats

1 tbs. brown sugar

1 tbs. milk chocolate chips

½ tbs. unsalted butter




  1. Pour the water and oats into a pot and cook on low for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  2. Add brown sugar, chocolate chips, and unsalted butter.
  3. Stir until all ingredients are melted and incorporated, creating a creamy coffee color.

*Optional: for less sugar but still the chocolate cookie taste, use ½ tbs. milk chocolate chips.

Raspberry White Chocolate Oatmeal

I like raspberry white chocolate cookies so the idea inspired me to create this oatmeal.


1 cups water

½ cup old fashioned oats

1 tbs. white chocolate morsels

¼ cup raspberries (frozen or fresh)

1 tbs. milk (optional)




  1. Cook oats in water for 10 minutes on low.
  2. It’ll be a thick and creamy consistency. Stir so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  3. If using frozen raspberries, cook them with the oats to warm and soften.
  4. After the oats are cooked, add white chocolate (if using fresh raspberries add them now).
  5. Stir and serve.

Tip: For a creamy texture, blend in a food processor or with a hand blender.

Caramel Apple

I love caramel and apples.  This is one of my favorite morning breakfasts.



1½ cups water

½ cup old fashioned oats

1/2 apple sliced or diced depending on your preference (a whole apple gives you more than one piece in each bite)

2 tbs. brown sugar

2 tbs. milk

1/2 tbs. butter



  1. Cook oats for 10 minutes on low in water. It’ll be a thick and creamy consistency. Stir occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  2. If you want softer apples cook them with the water and oats.
  3. If you want crunchy apples cook them in the sauce for 5 minutes.
  4. While oats are cooking, combine the brown sugar, milk, and butter in a saucepan on low for five minutes. It’ll darken in color and bubble.
  5. Pour caramel sauce over cooked oats.
