Sweet Ways to Top Your Morning Oatmeal

Although the groundhog predicted spring would be arriving early, it’s not here yet! Last weekend was windy and cold with temperatures in the 20s. It was the perfect weather for a steaming bowl of cozy oatmeal. If you are looking for a meal to keep you and your family warm and full all morning long, an oatmeal bar with everyone’s favorite topping is a crowd pleaser.

Next time you want to make a special winter breakfast for family or friends, start by cooking up a large pot of oatmeal. I’m a big fan of Trader Joe’s rolled oats cooked on the stove top. While the oats are cooking, gather toppings and place them in prep dishes so everyone can top their own oatmeal.

To make your bowl extra sweet, serve your oatmeal with barkTHINS snacking chocolate. I love throwing in a few pieces of the toasted coconut or pumpkin seed bark – the warm oatmeal melts the chocolate for a decadent breakfast treat.
