How to Make Creamy Oatmeal
The key to getting a creamy, not-gluey bowl of oatmeal is using enough water. Cooking oatmeal in milk tends to make a stickier, thicker oatmeal. If preferred you can add a splash of almond milk or regular milk to your oatmeal.
Healthy Toppings for Oatmeal
- Fruit – banana, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries.
- Dried fruit
- Hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds.
- Nuts – almonds, pecans.
- Peanut butter or almond butter.
- Cocoa nibs or dark chocolate chips
Tips for Making Peanut Butter Oatmeal
- For extra crunch/texture, add your favorite nuts or seeds – this peanut butter oatmeal is so versatile when it comes to the toppings.
- If you don’t want to use peanut butter, you can swap for cashew butter or almond butter.
- Use honey or coconut sugar as your sweetener if you don’t have agave.
