Gingerbread Oatmeal

This recipe give 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 it extra festive.

Pinch salt

½ cup old fashioned oats

1 ½ teaspoons dark brown sugar

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.
