My Favorite Recipes

This is an incredibly difficult list to maintain. For the longest time, I struggled to grasp what "favorite" meant. There are recipes I'm really proud of (like my Neapolitan Baked Oatmeal), but these aren't necessarily the same recipes I make again and again. Should I pick the recipes that rocked my socks once or twice, or should I pick my standard "lovers" that I run to again and again when I'm craving some reliably delicious oatmeal?

In the end, I went with the latter. These are the oatmeal recipes that have not only wowed me once, but have been made multiple times to please my stomach! Warning: due to my ever-changing preferences, this list changes all the time! One thing that will always remain present on this list: peanut butter.

My Top 10 Favorite Oatmeal Recipes! 
(last updated 9/2/2013)

Although this is a stovetop recipe, I often use it for overnight
oatmeal, too. It's excellent topped with raisins and walnuts!

9. Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
BakedStove-Top, or Overnight

The healthiest pumpkin pie you will ever eat, yet still undeniably tasty! This trio of recipes
is one of my most popular recipes on the blog.

8. Brownie Batter Oatmeal

Creamy. Thick. Rich. BROWNIE BATTER.

7. PB&J&Banana Oatmeal, Baked or Stove-Top

It makes sense that my favorite sandwich is also one of my favorite oatmeals.

This oatmeal is best made with quick cooking steel-cut oats. I mean,
look how creamy it is!

One taste of this and I died of happiness. Best. Savory. Oatmeal.

This porridge is so refreshing. I used to think Pina Colada Oatmeal
was my favorite tropical porridge, but then this one came along. Thanks to the hidden
banana, this oatmeal is incredibly creamy while still being bright and sunny.

The King was definitely onto something: peanut butter + bananas + honey = winner.

I love this with strawberries, but no matter which berry
you choose, this oatmeal is easy and delicious. 

Bananas make it creamy and sweet. Cocoa powder makes it fudgy. Peanut butter
makes it salty and rich. I ate this for breakfast on my 23rd AND 24th birthday, after bad days at work,
and as a treat when I accomplished important goals! I make this all the time.


  1. I love your blog and have been obsessed with it for several months now. I wanted to make a suggestion, and I wasn't sure if there was a better way to do that than with a comment. Do you have any plans for recipes with figs? It is fig season where I live, and though I have never eaten a Fig Newton, it seems like a fun flavor to try to imitate!

  2. Wow. You're very creative with oatmeal. My oatmeal normally ends up with sultana's or blueberries. So thanks for the inspiration.

  3. If you wrote a cookbook....I would buy it.

    1. I would too! Your recipes are amazing.

    2. I would buy it too! Maybe you should look into making one!

  4. I was wondering if you were planning a cookbook as well. ; )

  5. I just learned about your blog a couple of weeks ago and I've tried a different oatmeal almost every day since. Peanut butter cookie oatmeal this morning - I'm in love! Keep up the great work. I admire your creativity! - Michelle

  6. I just happened upon this as well. I LOVE oatmeal and I try to eat organic whenever possible, so these recipes are perfect :-D Bookmarked this blog ;-)

  7. I'd love to buy a cookbook from you! I eat oatmeal every day for breakfast and love trying new recipes!

  8. I love this blog :) Have you ever tried making red velvet oats? How would you go about doing that?

    1. No--I've never been a huge fan of red velvet cake, so I've never bothered. If I ever make it, I would use pureed beets to make the red color.

  9. I used to eat the same cold All-Bran cereal every day, but your blog has transformed my mornings. I now go to bed thinking about the delicious oatmeal recipe I will try the next day. I never knew breakfast could be so much fun. Thank you!!
