Vacation is a few days away. (Yay!) I’m kick starting my countdown with a bowl of “vacation flavored” oats. Or at least that’s what it tastes like …

cherry vanilla almond oatmeal | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s obvious I’m a lover of oatmeal. (Just check out my Instagram feed) Some say it’s old people food. Old people food?? No way! Well, maybe if it was plain oats and water … so very ho hum. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

You could have a bowl of oatmeal every day for a year and have something different every morning. It can be sweet, savory, creamy, crunchy, sinful, or the healthiest bowl known to man.

I’m usually not one to have a whole blog post about oatmeal. But every once in a blue moon, there sits a bowl in front of me and it completely blows my mind with how delicious it is. So today, coconut cream pie oatmeal gets its debut …

It’s so creamy and coconutty. I felt like I was having dessert and not breakfast … and that’s completely ok with me 🙂 Plus, this oatmeal is packed with protein! With the addition of liquid egg whites (which make the oatmeal so fluffy and light) and a greek yogurt topping, I was full for hours. You could also sub coconut whipped cream for the greek yogurt. OR drizzle it with coconut maple cream. Now that would be delicious, too 😉

I woke up this morning craving cake. CAKE.

This is nothing unusual for me. Cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner would be ideal. However, in the real world, that would be frowned upon … but who cares? Cake for breakfast? Absolutely! Make it into an oatmeal and no one will even question it.
