Gingerbread Oatmeal

Submitted by: COFFEE_QUEEN

Introduction

Yummy gingerbread oatmeal for the holidays! Feel free to lessen the amount of spices for a milder flavour, or even use Torani sugar-free ginerbread syrup instead for no extra calories and all the good gingerbread flavour.

*Modified from a recipe I once read, which used molasses, sugar, and whole milk, for my personal low-cal sugar-free dietary desires.

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/3 cup quick or regular oats cereal
    2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1/4 tsp allspice
    As many packets no-cal sweetener as you like
    2/3 or 3/4 cup water, depending on how thick you want it
    dash salt (optional but included in nutrition info)

    [If you have Torani sugar-free gingerbread syrup, this can be used for great gingerbread taste instead of the spices and for no extra calories. 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp should do it, depending on tastes.]

Directions

One recipe is a serving.

Mix oats, salt, half the sweetener, and the water together in a bowl. Cook for 1 minute. Add all ingredients except milk; stir well. Cook for another minute. Remove and stir in milk and other half of sweetener.

Alternatively you can cook the oatmeal first for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, and add everything in later for what I feel is a milder flavour.

    I used a full one serving of old fashioned quaker oats which is 1/2 cup. I used pumpkin pie spice ( 1 tsp) which has all the above spices plus cloves. I used sweet and low and NO milk, and a tsp of DaVinci sugar free vanilla syrup. 157 calories later I had a yummy breakfast. Thanks =) - 4/28/09

    Ah, I never thought of using pumpkin pie spice instead of my little mix! Now that you mention it, it makes sense. :) I'm glad my recipe helped you have a yummy breakfast! One of those always makes the day a little better for me! :D

  • I'm constantly on the look out for new ways to (literally) spice up my oatmeal, and this one was excellent! Nice combination of spices, and the microwaving technique worked well.

    I'll definitely make this again! - 1/23/09
