20 Delicious Oatmeal Breakfast Recipes

Do you ever wake up in the morning lacking inspiration for breakfast? I know that I do! Then occasionally I will have breakfast ready for my boys when they wake up in the morning but when they come downstairs they might ask for something completely different. And who can resist such a cute little face?

I love making oatmeal and some of these oatmeal breakfast recipes are perfect to serve. We even for snacks occasionally. Oatmeal is inexpensive, filling, and can be very tasty. Plus my two year old thinks it's a wonderful treat! It's also nice to have a warm breakfast on those cold winter days and a big bowl of oatmeal fits the bill.

I've previously posted on How to Make Perfect Oatmeal and shared with you some of my favorite oatmeal add-ins, and today I've got another great list of oatmeal recipes to share with you!

"This recipe is super adaptable as you can add whatever toppings or mix-ins you fancy! Lately I've been adding in a scoop of protein powder or peanut flour for extra protein as I've been working out like a boss and I've been adding fresh strawberries on top and I switch nut butters and mix-ins depending on what I have available at the time or what I wake up feeling like in the morning."

Southern-In-Law - Gluten Free High Protein Overnight Oats

"Another thing I love about this recipe? It’s super customizable. You can add as much or little dark chocolate shavings, cinnamon, and unsweetened coconut flakes as you’d like. You can cook the oats with milk for a creamier oatmeal or you can cook them with water to make them vegan. Possibilities abound!"
