Gingerbread Oatmeal

Gingerbread Oatmeal


This recipe gives you the essence of gingerbread served in a warm bowl for breakfast. Aromatic cinnamon, cloves, and ginger wafting from a comforting bowl of oatmeal provides all the cozy holiday vibes in the most nourishing way. An optional dollop of whipped cream on top makes this gingerbread oatmeal extra festive.


Gingerbread Oatmeal



1 cup 1% low-fat milk
Pinch salt
½ cup old fashioned oats
1 ½ teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon molasses
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch ground cloves
1 tablespoon whipped cream



Place the milk and salt into a medium saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Stir in the oats, sugar, molasses, cinnamon, ginger and cloves and cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats are tender and the oatmeal has thickened, about 5 minutes.

Serve dolloped with whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon.
