This year has been awesome! It’s been a really busy year, full of traveling for both work and fun times. 🙂 I’ve found myself grabbing breakfast at many a coffee shop, or even the airport. I’ve come to love, what I call “coffee shop oatmeal.” It’s fast, delicious and super filling.This also makes a fantastic breakfast for when you need something quick but crave something homemade. This takes minutes to put together and provided that you have a travel mug or bowl, an easy breakfast to take on the go.Coffee Shop Oatmeal, makes one serving.
2/3 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup mixed nuts (I used pecans, sunflower seeds and chia seeds)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar, brown sugar or honey*
2/3 cup milk
*You can adjust the sweetness level to your liking or cut out the sweetner entirely.Combine all the ingredients, besides milk, in a heat proof mug or small bowl. Steam the milk until piping hot. I did this using the steaming wand of my espresso machine, but you can also easily do this on the stove in a small pot. Whisk the milk as it heats up, incorporting air into the milk so you can get that latte foam. Foam makes this oatmeal seem more like a coffee shop. 🙂 Pour the milk into the oatmeal mixture, give it a stir and allow it to soak and soften for 4-5 minutes.For added flavor you could add fresh berries or dried fruit. Enjoy this along side a cup of coffee and you’ll feel like you’re ready to take on the day. Or, at least, that’s how I feel after oatmeal. 🙂Enjoy this friends! Happy breakfasting. 🙂 xo. Emma

I absolutely love this. I really like oatmeal, but often don’t think to prepare it for myself. Thanks for the reminder at how lovely it can be!
I work in a cafe in the blue mountains, Australia. Today was an exceptionally cold day and so decided to give this a crack at work. OMG it was amazing! Thank you girls for allowing me an extra 30 mins sleep in, because now I will just make my breakfast at work 🙂
sounds like an awesome breakfast 🙂
I was so excited to see this post because I make something similar for breakfast, we call them “oatmeal lattes.”
1/2 cup of *cooked oatmeal
1 cup of milk
1 TBL of maple syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
– in a blender and blend for a minute or so.
–then pour into a cup and microwave until hot and frothy. We then add a shot of espresso to make it a latte 🙂
Hope you try it out some time!
Love this idea! I’m always eating on-the-go. Thanks for sharing, ladies!
Mmm…soo trying this! Even if I don’t have to get ur early to go somewhere I will eat this because it looks so good!
This sounds AMAZING! I love coffee shop oatmeal – my hubs always makes fun of me because it’s my “go to” breakfast when we’re on the go and he thinks it’s so boring, but it’s SO yummy if you get it just right!
Thank you so much for posting this! I just found my go-to breakfast for summer! YAY!
Yum! What a great idea! This looks so yummy! I am defiantly going to give this a try tomorrow morning!!
That looks super easy and also really great for energy in the morning! I’m unsure if I’m willing to froth milk on my stove top each morning [and subsequently wash the dishes right after] but I’ll definitely give it a try!
So cute, looks like delicious !
Thank you for all your recipe ! <3
Nothing beats drinking a fresh cup of hot coffee in the office first thing in the morning.
A better way to enjoy this is to have your very own coffee machine installed at your business.
Looks delicious! But I totally though you were going to pour coffee into it for a new twist, which I wasn’t so sure about… Glad you kept it traditional 🙂
This is so easy and looks delicious, thanks for sharing!
great shots!love the caravan!
That looks so good!
