Good morning friends!!

Foodblog-3503

How many days has it been since I had hot oats? A week? This was a perfect bowl! A big bowl too. I’ve been out of granola (aka toppings) so I’ve been making 1/2 cup of oats serving instead.

This bowl of whipped banana oatmeal also had mixins of cottage cheese and blackberries (stirred in at end) and Nat. Nutty Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter! My favorite nut butter of the moment.

Mmm those blackberries look so plump and delicious! I haven’t had any this Summer because they are like 5 dollars a pint here! But I definitely will have to keep an eye out for them at the farmers market this weekend! Maybe I can score a deal!

Whoa that’s high for blackberries! Ours (in Ohio) have mostly been $1-$2 a pint this summer. :)

Vanilla and cinnamon AND nut butter… hmmm… not sure I’ve seen it in stores here but it sounds easy enough to make at home… gonna try it for sure. Have a great day Kath!

Interesting that the Nat. Nutty Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter is your fave – and I thought Biscoff Crunchy was your #1 BFF :)

The blackberries you’ve been posting look so juicy and gorgeous! I recently bought some frozen ones to throw in yogurt, but it’s not quite the same. So jealous!

YUM! I do love a big bowl of oatmeal. In fact I had my own for breakfast! ;)

Is that almond butter sweetened?

15 KathEats August 9, 2012 at 10:37 am

Yes, slightly

Love all the colors in your pictures — the chair, the bowl, the linen, the mug — so pretty!

And the food looks pretty great too :)

Since you’re currently out of granola, I wanted to show you one that I stumbled upon recently: http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Path-Granola-Coconut-12-34-Ounce/dp/B007PQTIRI/ref=sr_1_24?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1344472742&sr=1-24 I’ve not had a chance to try it, but it seems right up your alley with both coconut and chia included!

Oooo that does look good! I love all of Nature’s Path’s!

Funny enough, I had Naturally Nutty Vanilla peanut butter in my oats this morning! I bought the cinnamon vanilla but haven’t tried it yet. Maybe tomorrow :)

It’s the green “table” the breakfast is on!

I haven’t had oats in what feels like FOREVER! I really need to try my hand at another batch of whipped banana oats. I can never make it look as fluffy as yours!

25 Erin @ erinberries August 9, 2012 at 10:12 am

Where do you get all your cute napkins?! You have such a variety of really colorful ones that I am just following in love with!

This one is from Target!

27 Julia @ Girl vs. Food August 9, 2012 at 10:15 am

I had oats for breakfast this morning but this bowl looks so luscious that I am already craving it again!

28 donna August 9, 2012 at 10:45 am

Ah, I thought you had bought you a new rocker for you or the baby!

29 Katie August 9, 2012 at 11:10 am

I’m just curious if you buy your oats in bulk. I blow threw mine wicked fast and I don’t even have oats for breakfast every day!

Reply

30 KathEats August 9, 2012 at 11:57 am

I do, I get them from the bakery. But I used to just use the bulk bins at WF

your oats are making me think of fall! that’s the time when we love to eat oats…already getting excited for fall!

I love topping my oatmeal with granola – it’s always a sad day when I run out!

Reply

34 Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut August 9, 2012 at 2:12 pm

I always get oatmeal envy when I look at your blog! Yummm. I don’t love cottage cheese, but maybe Greek yogurt would work for added protein??

Cinnamon vanilla almond butter sounds great!

Reply

36 Tiffany August 9, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Yum! I had hot oats today too :)

When you use granola as a topping what is your portion size for both the dry oats and the granola?

:) Thanks!

Reply

37 KathEats August 9, 2012 at 8:01 pm

1/3 cup oats, sprinkled topped of granola – maybe 2 tbsp?

Reply

38 Angel7 August 10, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Love the blobs of almond butter on top!
