The Secret Oatmeal Files

My friend, Allison, whom I met though facebook, comes up with the most decadent oatmeal concoctions EVER! Alas, Allison does not have a blog. (I keep telling her that she needs one.) However, she informed me that she’d be happy for me to pass along her recipes via my blog. So, for the next few weeks, I’m going to post one outrageous oatmeal recipe per week. Admittedly, I haven’t tried any of these yet, but Allison has tested them all. Are you ready for some amazingly creative ideas? If so, scroll down!

S’more Oatmeal

Cook up 1/2 cup oats according to directions on the box.
Crush up a graham cracker square and mix it in.
Also mix in a few teaspoons of Smuckers’ Marshmallow topping or Ricemellow Creme.
Throw in some chocolate chips.
Pour milk of choice over the oatmeal and enjoy.

On an unrelated note, I’ve been getting a bunch of wild and wacky searches lately, so be on the lookout for an upcoming post with the third installment of “Crazy searches that lead to my blog.”

    I’m LOVING all your oatmeal posts! They make my day 😀

    I can’t believe I never thought of marhsmellows/ricemellows + oatmeal before!

    And I love how you met your friend through facebook–that’s how I met my housemates! :p

    Oh, and not sure if you’ve been tagged yet, but I tagged you on my blog!

  8. Jenny says

    That sounds really good! Sometimes I have oatmeal in the evening for a snack (it’s sweet, warm, and creamy – what’s not to love?) and this recipe sounds so decadent! Thanks for posting, and thanks to Allison for agreeing to share!

  9. Astra Libris says

    Mmmmm, I am completely excited about the idea of regular oatmeal recipes! I eagerly await the next update of the Secret Oatmeal Files! Thank you, Oatmeal Agent CCV! 😉

    can’t wait for the crazy searches post! allison sounds awesome – i love oatmeal so decadent oatmeal recipes are always welcome. i’ve been having oatmeal for breakfast every day but i thought i’d shake it up today with waffles…but now i regret it because i’m craving oats like crazy!

    and of course, you’ll have to post about apple cupcakes if that magazine article you mentioned inspires you to make some!

  11. ChocolateCoveredVegan says


    LOL I have the same problem all the time— I am completely full, but then I see some amazing food picture/recipe and lo-and-behold, I’m hungry again!

  12. Avra-Sha Faohla says

    Oh, a few days ago I had the idea for S’more Oatmeal! Of course I looked under your “All Oatmeal Recipes” to see if you had come up with the idea too (it’s right up your alley!), but I saw no S’more Oatmeal listed. You might want to put up a link to this post there. 😉
