It’s time for a filling breakfast that’s quick to make and not short on sweet, caramel flavor. Caramel Almond Oatmeal is the perfect pair for your morning coffee and some fresh fruit.
I am not exaggerating when I say that there are about 4 different kinds of oatmeal in my cupboard at this very moment. My kids prefer the quick cooking kind, my husband likes regular rolled oats and I like them all, but steel cut oats are one of my faves depending on my mood. Oatmeal is so versatile, you can switch up the flavors and add-ins and taste something different every time. When I’m having a rushed morning, I like to put my hot oatmeal in a coffee cup and take it to go…it’s perfectly portable that way.
Enjoy Silk Almond Creamer in Vanilla, Caramel or Hazelnut with your morning coffee for a creamy, sweet, dairy free sip. Silk Creamers are free from dairy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and peanuts…which pretty much means they can be enjoyed by just about everyone. You know I’m a fan of using flavored creamers when making muffins, french toast and desserts, well this time I’ve added it to my morning bowl of oatmeal and it’s a sweet way to start the day!
To Make Caramel Almond Oatmeal:
I usually make oatmeal on the stove top. I stir together the liquids and the oatmeal at the same time rather than waiting for things to come to a boil first. Don’t forget the little pinch of salt – salt is a flavor enhancer and helps add balance to the final dish. You can add a tablespoon of ground flax after its done cooking if you like, it makes things a little thicker and adds to the overall nuttiness factor. I found the creamer to add enough sweetness, so I didn’t need any additional sweetener. If you do, add it after it’s done cooking. I always add a splash of something creamy to my oatmeal, so I added a bit more creamer before diving in 🙂
