Oatmeal Week

Seeing as I’ve already posted two Oatmeal-themed blog entries this week, I’m going to go ahead and declare this week to be Ode to Oatmeal Week.  Let the oat-loving begin! 



Oatmeal Raisin Pudding
2 cups milk of choice
2 cups cooked oatmeal
2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup raisins
optional 1/4 cup sweetener of choice, or to taste

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Then turn down to low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pudding is the desired consistency. Makes 2-4 servings, depending on how big the eater’s appetite is and whether the pudding is being consumed as a meal or a snack.

The above method works for more than just oatmeal-raisin pudding:  You can take any rice pudding recipe and simply substitute cooked oats for the rice.  Coconut rice pudding?  Chocolate rice pudding?  Maple rice pudding?  Pumpkin rice pudding?  Mr. Oatmeal can do all this and more! (Not that you ever doubted him.)

    HOORAY oatmeal week, one of my latest foodie obsessions!!! I <3 this “oatmeal pudding” recipe, I think in my house it would serve two happy campers 😉
    P.S. I have a tray like that (of family photos, home made with love) like that too! 😀

    I am loving all of these decadent oatmeal bowls. You have changed my life with these blended grain bowls of deliciousness. Another one I can’t wait to try!!

    Woohooo for oatmeal week! I can’t wait to see your other creations. And this is getting added to my breakfast list too, right behind the snickerdoodle oats.

    Olalala, I would def try making chocolate oatmeal pudding nxt time! I love love love rice pudding!! You’re soo right, blending/whizzing it (even just for a tiny bit) gives it a rice pudding texture 😀 ORR do you have an ‘all things blended’ addiction!?!! 😯 OMGAAAAA

    Oatmeal week is the best!!!

    I’m totally making your snickerdoodle oats on saturday as my “last meal” at home! Love this idea! I also have made your famed oatmeal pudding recipe but that was before I started blogging!

    these look so good! I loved your “themed weeks” and I’m really excited what else oatmeal week has in store! =)

    if you went a post without mentioning grains, i’d really worry about you. you’re just hard-wired to love the grains baby–no shame in that.

    At my house every week is oatmeal week! I discovered this food when going vegan and I’ll never ever live without it! Thank you for all the oatmeal ideas.

    Oatmeal week! Hooray!!! Especially because oatmeal is my favorite food, partly a preference I owe all to you! Your oatmeal pudding idea is and was the best version of oatmeal I’ve ever tried!!! I actually have two new spins on your recipe to post this week after making some incredible new oatmeal discoveries! Yaaaaay!

  11. Sarah says

    This is one of my all time favorite recipes from your blog! I’ve been following your recipes for some time and this is by far the one I make most. My spin on it is to add Tazo Liquid Chai with the almond milk–tastes awesome! Thanks so much for all your posts, due to health, I am now vegan and rely so much on all your blogs for food ideas!
