Gingerbread Oatmeal

Merry Christmas Eve! I hope everyone is enjoying family, relaxation, and good food! If you need an idea for a Christmas breakfast or brunch, look no further. This oatmeal is seasonal, delicious, healthy, and best of all – easy! More time for opening presents and sitting by the fire! Best served with a hot drink and a side of cookies 😉

Also, if you are as lucky as me (haha…) and are currently in Minnesota where it is zero degrees, you’ll want this in your belly before you try and head outside…


Gingerbread Oatmeal


1/2 cup rolled oats

1 cup almond milk (or any other type)

1 tsp molasses

1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tbsp crystallized ginger (this adds a nice texture to the oatmeal, but substituting ground ginger is fine)

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp brown sugar



Mix all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Cook according to directions on oats, pausing halfway to stir. Top with cereal, fruit, peanut butter, or whatever you desire (it’s Christmas so maybe a gingerbread man? 🙂

Merry Christmas!
