The Best Oatmeal Recipes to get you out of a Breakfast Slump

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Fordham chapter.

Oatmeal is probably my absolute favorite food. SO versatile and convenient for any situation. I love to make overnight oats before early morning classes and baked oats on slow weekend mornings. I also will eat oatmeal for lunch or dinner on occasion because it is just so easy to make and always delicious. 

Coconut Cacao Microwave oats

In a microwave safe bowl combine: 

  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ cup almond milk, ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1tbs chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder 
  • ½ banana 

Mix the ingredients and microwave for 2 minutes, let stand for an additional 1-2 minutes and tip with cacao nibs or chocolate chips, almond butter, coconut flakes, some dairy free yogurt
