Matt made oatmeal!! I still can’t figure out what he does differently than me, but I’m pretty sure it’s a little less water. His oatmeal is so flavorful and dense!

Whipped banana oatmeal topped with puffed brown rice, pumpkin chip Hungry Bar and Naturally Nutty Almond Butter!

Just some guzzled water on the side. I slept OK last night, but not great – still tired! Maybe today I will take a nap…it is on my baby to-do list!

Ahhh I miss Naturally Nutty AB so so so so so much! I’m tempted to drive down there just to stock up. The GHs up here need to get on the nutty bandwagon.

I need to pick up some puffed rice! I forgot how good it is as a topping! Adds such nice crunch!

I love oats in every form EXCEPT watery oatmeal…it has to be thick!

Kath, random question: could you tell what heart rate/calorie burn monitor you use (if you use one), or, which one you would recommend? I don’t want to spend a ton of money, no more than $100. And, I want one that is a wrist-watch with heart rate monitor, calorie burner, and keeps track of my weekly workouts. If you know of one, I would appreciate your help! Thanks!

I love big bowls of oatmeal! So sweet of Matt to make it for you :) I hope you get to take a nap today!

I agree – thick oatmeal is the best!! I don’t often order it when I’m out because restaurants make it all soupy..

I seriously took a nap EVERY single day of my pregnancy– I don’t know how you do it!! And now Lila is a really great napper, which I attribute to my own napping skills :-)

I guzzle water in the morning too- like 60 oz guzzle (within an hour though)….Since week 35 came along, I feel the need to nap and have actually given in about three or four times- it should be on the baby to do list :)

The bowl totally looked like a soup bowl to me in the first picture. Then you revealed the lovely breakfast on the inside. Yum!

I would never think to top oatmeal with cereal.. A good change up in texture!

Try to get a nap in today!

26 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats July 30, 2012 at 10:51 am

I definitely think oatmeal tastes different depending on who makes it, I put up my own oatmeal recipes on my blog but I’m sure it comes out different when people try the recipe! Haha still good I hope!

It’s always better when someone else makes it! Enjoy those naps now! ;)

Hey Kath,

I tried making oatmeal in my rice cooker and it was great! The oats were extremely fluffy! I used 1 cup water 1/4 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup rolled oats with salt, few raisins and lots of cinnamon! I left out the chia seeds because I think that’s what was making gummy? But I guess you could sprinkle them on top. Hope you are able to try them again :)

29 KathEats July 30, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Good idea! I’ll have to do this again soon :)

30 Tiffany July 30, 2012 at 12:58 pm

:) I forgot to add, when you open the rice cooker it will look like there is too much water and its settled on top but just give it a good stir and it becomes the perfect consistency.

I also tried Barley flakes in the rice cooker and it was wonderful! Similar to oats but a bit sweeter and nuttier.

Hope you’re having a great day :)

That Naturally Nutty spoonful looks like the absolute perfect addition.

MMMmm that oatmeal looks delicious! It’s always good when someone else is making it for you! Get some rest today!

33 Catalina @ Cake with Love July 30, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Well, all I can say is that it looks good!! I always try to use less water, makes my oats so much better!

34 Erica July 30, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Josh makes a few things MUCH better than me and I have no idea what he does either. Sometimes I think it just tastes better because someone else made it vs. me ;)

35 Michele Sparrow July 30, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Our oatmeal at home, when we look at it served up in a bowl, just does NOT look as delicious as yours ALWAYS does. Loving the multiple layers and textures, too! :-)

36 Amelia July 30, 2012 at 11:24 pm

Take as many naps as you possibly can :) Napping days are seriously numbered, as I’m sure you hear all the time!

That oatmeal looks yummy. I tried looking up Hungry Bar and I would love to try it. Where can you find it?
