Chocolate Covered Strawberry Oats

chocolate covered strawberry oatsIn case you were wondering, why yes, I have been on an oatmeal kick lately. It’s warm, it’s quick to make and it keeps me full for a very long time. Plain oatmeal can get old quick. I don’t mind a bit of honey or a splash of maple syrup, maybe some nuts or raisins to spruce things up but I tend to be a creature of habit and stick to simple ingredients which generally means I am repeating.  With the cooler weather I wanted to kick my oatmeal up a notch and it all started with that wonderful Brownie Batter Oatmeal. And just when I thought I couldn’t make it any better, I came up with Peanut Butter Cup Oats

For the new twist, I wanted to use some fruit.

May I present to you Chocolate Covered Strawberry Oats.

This recipe is super simple. It starts with the Brownie Batter Oatmeal as the base and then topped with strawberries. YUMtastic!

If strawberries are not your thing, you can try raspberries. I would have used them if they weren’t so expensive. They are lower glycemic and carb compared to strawberries, but this time of year they aren’t less in the pricing department.

Note – I used frozen whole strawberries. Since I placed them in a bowl while I cooked the oatmeal. When it was done I put the strawberries on top of the oatmeal after it had been placed in the dishes. By the time I sat down to eat, my berries were thaw.

    Sounds awesome! I’m going to have to try this! We’d love it if you’d shared it at our Found & Foraged link up party. This Friday at 8PM Central Time…normally it’s Saturdays at 8PM but InLinkz is having some sort of maintenance server update during our normal party time. Anyhoo, we’d love to see you at http://houseofhipsters.com/

  3. I am an oatmeal fan. I preferred method of consuming is oatmeal cookies but since that would not be in my best interest, I usually eat steel cuts oatmeal for breakfast with a little brown sugar. I love chocolate and oatmeal together also.

  4. I’m not a big fan of oats, but as this recipe contains chocolate and strawberries, I’m sure I’ll like it 😀 Thanks for sharing the recipe!
