Loaded Oatmeal

Loaded Oats PotLR

Although I have been enjoying it for years, I just wrote this recipe for Camp Cabela’s. It’s a great way to incorporate a variety of “superfoods” into a fast, easy breakfast in camp or at home. If you haven’t ever fried up leftover oatmeal, you must give it a try. Keep it healthy by using coconut oil or if you want to splurge, fry it up in bacon grease or butter! Loaded Oats Bagged IngredientsLR

Loaded Oatmeal

  • 5 cups water
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • Any or all of the following:
  • 1/4 cup raisins and/or chopped dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dried stevia
  • Rind from 1/2 an orange
  • 1 cinnamon stick

DIRECTIONS:  In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add oats, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining ingredients, cover and remove from heat source. Serve with milk or non-dairy alternative if desired.KAZ oatsLR

*VARIATIONS:  Loaded Oatmeal can be prepared ahead of time and stored in a sealable container. To serve as traditional oatmeal, reheat in a pot over medium high heat. For Oatcakes, drop by rounded tablespoons onto a hot, well-greased griddle (press down with spatula to flatten), cooking each side to golden brown. For Pie Iron Oats, scoop servings into a well-greased pie iron and heat over coals, gas burner or campfire.Pie Iron SilverfireLRLoaded Oats Pie IronLR
