Gingerbread Oatmeal (a warm and cozy New Year’s breakfast)

If you like the flavor of gingerbread (my favorite), you will love this oatmeal. Combining the traditional gingerbread flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and molasses, you create a healthy version of gingerbread in a bowl. For a faster breakfast, make it the night before and reheat in the microwave with a splash of milk. A warm and cozy way to start a cold winter morning.

Gingerbread Oatmeal


1 cup old fashioned oats

2 cups fat-free milk (or milk of your choice)

Dash of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger

2 teaspoons molasses

Chopped walnuts

Brown sugar or maple syrup if desired


Cook oatmeal according to directions, using milk instead of water. Divide into 2 bowls. Top each bowl with a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Drizzle each serving with 1 teaspoon molasses and top with chopped walnuts. If you want a sweeter oatmeal, stir in a teaspoon of brown sugar or maple syrup.
