When is a Snickerdoodle not a Snickerdoodle?

When it’s Snickerdoodle Oatmeal!

snickerdoodle oatmeal

Serves one hungry CCK or one and a half normal people.  No, I do not recommend taking to the streets in search of a “half” person to eat the oatmeal you cannot finish.  Now if you want to cut your roommate in half…  Ok, no I don’t recommend that either!  So what, then, would I suggest to someone who only wants a recipe that yields the standard serving?  Alter the ingredient amounts, sillies.  Your roommie will thank you.

Snickerdoodle Oatmeal

(Or sub another grain)

  • 1 and 1/2 servings oats (or other grain) (60g)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a little over 1/4 tsp salt
  • ½ to 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (I use ½ tsp)
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice (plus extra if you cook your cereal in milk)
  • Sweetener to taste (sugar, stevia, agave, etc.)

In a large Pyrex-type measuring cup, combine the flakes with about 1 and 1/2 cups liquid. Add a little salt (I use ¼ tsp plus 1/8 tsp).  Microwave for 4 minutes, 30 seconds (watching so it doesn’t spill over). Leave out for around 10 minutes, then stir and put in the fridge, uncovered.  It’s ok if the flakes are a bit liquidy—that’ll evaporate.

The next day, your hot cereal is ready for you to play. Mix in the vanilla, cinnamon, sweetener, and almond milk.  I also add 1/8 tsp more salt. Stir. Now I like to use my hand blender, but I only do a few pulses (like 4 or 5), so the Snickerdoodle cereal will keep its magical chewy texture.  If you like your cereal to be hot, you can microwave it again at this time.  I actually prefer the cereal cold.  Especially after a run, the coolness is very refreshing.

**This works well with The Voluminous Oatmeal Trick!

    Kamuf flakes? do they taste like oatmeal? curious!

  2. Marianne says:

    Looks like a simple but awesome tasting bowl of hot cereal. I should try out some other hot cereals like kamut or spelt flakes.

  3. Good luck to everyone! We will be travelling for months so I’ll have to miss out on the chocolaty goodness 🙁

    Vanilla extract is one of my favorite baking ingredients ever.

    Snickerdoodles are one of the best things to ever happen to me. The more I think about it, I think they really made me aware of all the culinary things I was missing…

    I have never had a snickerdoodle before, but I am now craving snickerdoodle porridge!!! Yum!

  11. Caroline says:

    Although I have never actually had a real snickerdoodle (I know, strange, right?), that oatmeal sounds fab!

  12. Meg says:

    Love the snickerdoodle breakfast. I really need to get some of those Kamut flakes.

  13. Sweet and Fit says:

    loooove snickerdoodles! how do you like kamut flakes in comparison with oatmeal?

  14. Erin says:

    I love all of these decadent bowls of oats. I had a deliciously chocolate blended grain bowl this evening! And also grapefruit!

  15. Elle says:


    and i’m having a hard time deciding which recipe to post about for the contest! eeeeek.

  16. Sarah says:

    My girls love snickerdoodles, but don’t love saying it. They are simply known as “doodles” in our house. I want a “doodle” for breakfast. One day without blended grains is one day too many.

  17. brandi says:

    yum – i love snickerdoodles, so I would love these!

  18. Virginia says:

    snickerdoodles are my FAVE cookie…after choco chip!
