It’s Fall Y’all: Oats

October 28, 2012 at 7:00 am 6 comments

To me, oats scream fall. There is nothing better on a chilly, fall morning than a big bowl of hot oatmeal. Oats are also essential to great apple crisps and crumbles, or fresh oatmeal cookies. I love oats so much that I have earned the reputation amongst my friends as “Oatmeal Queen.” I will gladly wear that title. If oatmeal isn’t your thing, than maybe granola is. My goal has been to perfect the granola making process, and I think I am finally getting there! I like making granola better than buying it because you have so much more control over the amount of sugar that goes into your cereal. These two recipes really fit the bill!


Almond Butter Granola is a great option for a fast, no-fuss weekday granola. It takes seconds to prep, minutes to bake, and is so delicious! It is not overly sweet and is a great addition to trail mix or over yogurt!


Like I said last week, this Coconut Ginger Granola is possibly my new favorite treat! I used Smart Balance butter instead of coconut oil, omitted the Brazil nuts, and added a bit of ginger syrup, otherwise following the recipe pretty closely! This recipe makes me never want to buy granola from a store again.

In case those aren’t enough ideas, here are some links to my favorite oatmeal recipes…

    That coconut ginger granola is my favorite thing, too! I might have to try it with ginger syrup sometime.

    I only just found out that oats and wheat were different! Which makes me excited as I can eat them without being bloaty and I just love them as well!

      I know! Just be careful– depending on how sensitive you are, some oats are processed on the same equipment as wheat. My sister (gluten intolerant) is fine, but many people with Celiac’s or an allergy have to be a little more cautious!
