If you’re busy during the week, leftover stovetop oatmeal does re-heat well and is still way better in texture than microwave oats. The only secret is to rehydrate it with a little milk before heating.
But another idea: blend it up!
Two summers ago when I was in summer school classes from 8 AM to 9 PM daily with just a 3 hour break, I didn’t have time to exercise AND make breakfast in the mornings. So I’d make a big pot of oatmeal on Sunday and do creative things with it during the week. One of my favorites was to put cooked oatmeal into a smoothie! Example here!
These were the days before the Vita-Mix so the oats didn’t blend all the way. In today’s version they did
I didn’t measure so I don’t know exact proportions, but for TWO servings this was a blend of about:
- 2 cups cooked whipped banana oatmeal
- 1/2 a container Siggi’s greek yogurt
- 1 cup vanilla soy milk
- Half a banana
= OAT BATTER!
It was DA-licious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVED the texture. You could probably bake something fun with this!
I tried to go all PLS on my coffee with a tsp of pumpkin butter
It was good – nice spice – but I don’t like sweet coffee and of course I didn’t realize the jam would sweeten it! D’oh! Still good though.
