    Could you make a recipe for pumpkin pie oatmeal please? :)

    1. Ruth says:

      Easy: just add a little canned pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spices to your oatmeal. I’ve done it and it’s great. Also add sweetener.

    Katie! Did you see that Hungry Girl stole your voluminous oatmeal trick?! I’m sure people have done it in the past, but damn!
    http://www.hungry-girl.com/newsletters/raw/1519
    That’s the link to it…they totally should’ve given you credit – I bet the guy she’s referring to is a reader of yours! Hah :)

    1. Well, in their defense, if they DID get the idea from me, I’m betting the guy never told them where HE got the idea, so they probably don’t even know it was my idea!
      I wish we could patent ideas, but sadly you can’t. I guess, on the bright side, at least it means a bunch more people are being introduced to oatmeal’s awesomeness.

    so I would like to make a strawberry night-before-oats recipe. I have mccann’s quick cooking rolled oats( 1/2 cup serving? too much?) or bob’s red mill traditional rolled oats (box says 1/2 cup + 1 cup water, but I only want 1/3 cup, it’s much thicker and richer.) and just frozen strawberries. My intent is to have the oatmeal chilled or room temperature the next morning with the strawberries nice and pureed or small chunks in it without having to heat the whole thing again. I don’t have a single serving blender or small enough food processor to just do a couple strawberries the night before, although I could try… What would your suggestion be to come out with a decently strawberry tasting chilled oatmeal? :3 I might add some vanilla stevia drops or cook’s vanilla powder for flavor too. should I put those in when I cook it? or before eating? Since I won’t be reheating, maybe just a few seconds to mix it in but keep it cool… my blender is a big oster glass thing by the way! A bit difficult to use for just single serving things ): I might want to put all the oatmeal in if it’s not too thick and blend it, but I don’t want the oatmeal completely pudding and I -do- want the strawberries very pureed. Ahh, confusion!

    1. Hey Emma,
      I’ve actually never made a strawberry blended oatmeal concoction like the one you’re describing… you’ll have to experiment! Edible experiments can be fun! :)
      Let me know what you end up with… it sounds like the beginning of something yummy!

    OMG You have opened my eyes to oatmeal!
    I’m in Australia and it’s Winter right now, so I’ve been enjoying hot bowls of your oatmeal every morning. This morning I thought I’d try mixing oats with frozen raspberries, banana, linseed meal and just a drop or two of maple syrup… Hot banana rocks!

    Keep up the good work!! :)

    1. Aww yay for another oatmeal lover!! :)

    Is it sad that I’ve memorized the voluminous oatmeal trick?

    1. Too funny!

      Don’t worry, I memorized it loooong ago. So if it’s sad, then we’re both sad ;).

    Hi Katie,

    The link for the melted banana trick seems to be broken. Devastated as I was just shown your blog and I’m a bit in love with it. Did manage to break my blender with chickpeas though. Oops.

    1. Hmmm… I just clicked it on that page, and it worked for me. Maybe it was a temporary glitch?

      This is the link: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2008/11/26/two-for-one/

      I’m so glad you found me… but not so glad about your poor blender!

    Oatmeal is my breakfast of choice. I’m happy you found a way to make the serving larger, because I’m always dissapointed when I eat my bowl all gone….and I’m still a little hungry. No worries for me now!

    Every single morning I put a bowl of old fashioned oats in the microwave. While they are cooking i mash a banana on a paper plate, sprinkle cinnamon on it, add walnuts and a pad of smart balance. I scrape it into the oatmeal when its done and add a dash of sugar free syrup or honey. I love my oatmeal! My husband says this is why my cholesterol is good lol.

      I add peanut butter, crunch with mashed up banana, so good.

    I have a question: Do you ever eat oatmeal more than once a day? I am so in love with oatmeal that I crave it for like EVERY meal. I know it’s good to ahve variety, but sometimes I just want oatmeal ALL DAY!

    1. Haha every now and then, yeah! Or sometimes I’ll have spelt flakes or rye flakes or barley flakes… they’re kinda similar, but it’s a way to get some variety ;).

    For oats not for breakfast, check out the recipe for Golden oats from Quaker. Oatmeal is coated with raw egg, then cooked to a fluffy grain more like rice – a very nice change of pace.

      Hmmm, maybe not for us vegans… That’s a bit gross :/
