    Happy Saturday morning to you, too! Your blended oatmeal looks like a great start to the day.

    It’s almost dinner time here but the thought of my breakfast is still making me happy. I had some rye bread with cottage cheese and apricot jam. And a glass of boza (whatever this is 😀 ). Yum!

    you know, i’ve never tried the blender method! my blender at home is awful and vita-mixes are soooo expensive but i’ve never really seen the hand blender! it looks much easier to clean and probably less expensive 😉

    i do love your melted banana trick though! god bless the microwave hehe 🙂 and i honestly do not understand ppl who don’t like chocolate!! in my family i’m the only die-hard chocoholic. the rest of my fam loves lays potato chips, which is dumbfounding to me.

    have a great weekend!

    I’ve done the blending thing– but I have an even cleaner way to do it! I just grind the oats in a little spice grinder prior to cooking them and it gives me silky oatmeal pudding. I hate having to shew my oats, and this method is so delish!

    I actually got up 5 minutes ago– so I haven’t had breakfast yet. It is probably going to be something with oatmeal and Italian plums though. Mmmmm… Italian plums– I’m going to take them off the neighbors tree!

    i love your blended grains trick! i’ve even gotten my roommate into it! lol our room is pretty noisy now in the mornings, between your blended oatmeal and our green monsters we make from angela’s blog. our blenders get a workout!

  5. Valerie says

    Funnily enough, we had a CCK recipe for breakfast today: Brownie Batter Pancakes :). Kids ate ’em up. Tomorrow might have to be blended oats. Or maybe even your blueberry blended bulgur (although daughter dearest doesn’t like blueberries, so we’ll sub strawberries for hers).

  6. Namaste Gurl says

    Agreed, miss CCK. Love my oatmeal non- blended or blended, like a smoothie texture. Whatever form it’s in, I do love my oats.

    P.S– you’re REALLY making me want oatmeal and I’m away from home currently not able to have any! Arg!

    Looks yummy, Katie. I’m enjoying Banana Peanut Butter Pancakes on this end with a large cup of coffee. Love Saturday breakfasts.

  8. Little Bookworm says

    Happy Saturday Katie. 🙂 I had a lovely bowl of Banana Brulee Porridge for breakfast. 🙂 Your breakfast looks great too!

  9. Cindy says

    This might be the perfect morning for oatmeal…now I need to try your trick. They DO look so dreamy, I mean Creamy!

    it’s raining here. ick.

  10. Krystina (Organically Me) says

    Steel cut oats with spirulina, cocoa powder, vanilla brown rice protein, cacao nibs and a big swirl of almond butter. 😀

  11. Tricia says

    I’ve blended oats before. It’s delish 😛 but unfortunately, that’s not what i had for breakfast. I had a bagel and a soy latte from starbucks lol.

  12. thedelicateplace says

    my breakfast just happened at 1245pm lol. i had eggs over mixed greens and some mashed cauliflower fauxtatoes

  13. Laura says

    Homemade white toast with black cherry jam. Yum. Although it’s the same thing I have almost every morning – I probably should get a little adventurous in the weekends!

    And I love chocolate, but it hates me. I’m really allergic, unfortunately, so I’ll have to live vicariously through your chocolate creations!

  14. Fi says

    Hey! i love chocolate tooo 🙂 i just had me some choccy booja booja icecream! its agave, cashew nuts, cocoa and water-sooo yum! but for brekkie i had spelt flakes and toasted oat flakes with rice milk, honey, runny almond butter and a whole loada chopped soaked dates 🙂

  15. abby says

    happy halloween, pretty katie! i love your blended grain idea. i use it like once a week ever since you posted it :). my oats don’t always look as pretty as yours though!

  16. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) says

    Happy HWeen!

    I think as a mom (did the baby food stage and the blended toddler food stage), Ive blended just about everything. And as a food blogger, we just blend stuff. And as a Vita owner, yeah, i’ve blended everything under the sun. Including oatmeal…so creamy that way!

    🙂

  17. Leslie says

    When I first saw the blended oatmeal idea on your blog, I admit I thought it was a bit weird. But after a while (when you did the chocolate chip cookie dough one, I think?), I had to give in and try it. And now I am so glad I did! 🙂
    Happy Saturday, Katie!

  18. Shelby says

    I haven’t had blended oats in months! I’d better get on that, what is wrong with me?!

    Welllll, today I woke up at 10am so I wasn’t really hungry for breakfast. I made a green smoothie but didn’t drink it really. But I just had some yummy stir-fried veggies for lunch!

  19. Jos says

    Happy saturday to u too. I had pumpkin oats w/ almond milk for bfast today 🙂 never tried blended oats b4. Part of it coz I don’t wanna wash extra dish 😛

  20. Moni'sMeals says

    Happy Sat. to you too and Halloween!

    I love chocolate so much and pb- it is in every meal I make I feel like-this is a good thing!

    I had for breakfast- pancakes out at this great cafe. It was perfect.

    I just love your oatmeal meals. 🙂

  21. Jessica (PB & Jess) says

    Your brekkie looks pretty tasty to me! I <3 peanut butter almost as much as chocolate.

    I had cheezy-broccoli oat bran for breakfast because I'm suddenly into savory oats! Don't worry, I had two different kinds of dark chocolate later in the day! 🙂

  22. Claire says

    Happy Halloween (well it’s Halloween here in Aus), I think I might make the oatmeal tomorrow morning to give me some energy for my first exam this semester (yuck!) Today I had some granola that I made yesterday, I’ll never tired of granola … EVER!

  23. Anne @ Food Loving Polar Bear says

    After years of ” not liking oatmeal” I’ve been eating it like a maniac for the past few days 😀

  24. Mara says

    I had steel-cut oatmeal with chocolate almond silk (OMG!!), with 2 bananas and also a healthy dollop of TJ’s crunchy peanut butter — YUMM!!!!!! =P Pretty similar to yours except for the blending. I’ll consider that for next time.

  25. kathleen says

    so hot oatmeal doesn’t explode in the blender? i’m afraid of putting hot liquidy things in my blender and having to clean my ceiling.

  26. Nikki says

    I made myself some oatmeal the other day, and for some reason it really didn’t turn out nice. It tasted watery and the texture was all wrong (mind you, it might just have been me that was all wrong as I was feeling pretty irritable that day!) I kind of stormed out of the kitchen refusing to eat anythig for lunch, till my hunger brought me back to the kitchen to find something else to eat. BING! Then a light goes on, and I remember your blended grains trick – I threw the goopy let-down into my mini blender and showed it who was boss. The result…. The day was saved and now I look forward to messing up my oatmeal! The flavour and texture are totally transformed in the best of ways!!
