I love creating different types of oatmeal dishes, and I have fun creating different dessert options for different holidays. In my Easter basket this year, my mom put in a bag of bunny marshmallows, much like the heart marshmallows I used in my Valentine’s Day oatmeal. She immediately said she thought of me when she saw them and figured I could use them in oatmeal. Does she know me or what? This weekend I finally sat down to make my Easter oatmeal, and it was delicious!

Cute little bunnies.

Here’s what I included:

  • 2/3 cup dry oatmeal
  • 1.25 cups almond milk
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (my attempt at adding a little bit of healthiness to this)
  • 1 handful of bunny marshmallows
  • 1 small handful of jelly beans

WOW. This was SWEET. I felt a little like I was eating a bowl of lucky charms again, except maybe with a little more nutritional value thrown in there. I certainly did taste like a dessert, and it was delicious! The little marshmallows started to melt once they touched the hot oatmeal, which also made the taste more interesting.

It was delicious, but I think on a regular basis I’ll stick to my regular oatmeal, like my Blueberry Almond Oatmeal, Tropical Oatmeal, or the Strawberry Mango Oatmeal.

Now it’s your turn to share! What’s your favorite spring dessert to make? What’s one fun thing that you have planned for this weekend?
