I love oatmeal, and I love seasonal oatmeal even more! One of my favorite variations of oatmeal (you can see more here) is gingerbread oatmeal. It’s perfect for the Christmas season, as well as the cold winter mornings through January and February. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup almond milk (or other milk/water you choose)
- 1.5 tablespoons molasses
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 heaping tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp cloves
- 1/8 tsp allspice
Cook oatmeal in the microwave or on the stove. Stir in molasses and spices after cooking and enjoy!
Easy enough, and absolutely delicious! I tend to use a little more molasses, but I like it strong. Feel free to adjust the amount of each of the spices that you use. I tend to just shake a few times into the bowl instead of specifically measuring it all out.
