To Oats Or Not To Oats?

We are literally minutes away from Friday people, as I write this post, we are approximately 117 minutes away. Excited? Not so much. Kidding! I definitely am 🙂 Britt and I have a couple plans up our sleeves for this coming weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!

So let me get to the real topic. Hot oatmeal. One of my favorite breakfasts is overnight oats which is nice and cold. But hot oats? My favorite? Not so much. I feel totally out of the loop, though. Why does everyone love hot oatmeal so much? What am I not getting? Why is this frustrating me so much!

Of course, I had to make hot oatmeal this morning, just so I could try to convince myself that this is a really, truly, fantastic breakfast.

Into the oatmeal mix went:
-1/2 cup plain oats
-1/2 cup water
-1/2 cup Almond milk
-1 packet splenda
-a dash of pumpkin pie spice

Once the above was nice and warm, I placed the oatmeal into a bowl and stirred in 1/4 cup pumpkin, a couple tbsp of low sugar maple syrup, and 1 tbsp of sunflower butter. I also added a couple tbsp of granola.

The end product?

Alright, alright, so these weren’t bad. At all. The mix was satisfying and I loved how the pumpkin really added some extra bulk to the meal. However, I would take overnight oats any day over hot oats. Sorry I’m not sorry 😛

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a cup of this waiting for me…


Question of the Night

  1. I’m just the opposite… every time I try Overnight Oats I always wonder if my taste buds are weird because everyone else swears by them! On the other hand, I love my hot oats! I even like to add a dollop of cold greek yogurt or cottage cheese on top! And I am jealous of the froyo…. but I’ve had my share of treats today! A Reese’s cup for pre-breakfast and a mini Luna Bar for dessert tonight!

  2. I’m the exact opposite of you! I definitely prefer my oatmeal to be hot & I’ve never understood the appeal of cold oats! 🙂

    I make overnight oats because I’m just super lazy in the morning and I tend to not hear my alarm clock go off, so I’m also always in a rush. It is handy to just pop in the microwave. So jealous. I want froyo.

    everyone is totally different with their love of oats. like i tried overnights oats one time but i liked my hot oats more. then the other day, i mixed chobani, greek yogurt, and raw oats together. it was so good!

  5. I like hot oats when it’s cold outside, but I think it just reminds me of when I was little and my grandma used to make it for me. At least we can all agree on froyo!
