I’ve never been a huge oatmeal craver, but I’ve been loving the #Instaoats I’ve been seeing on my feed lately.  I add one of the PlantbasedRD seriously delicious-looking oat posts to my stories everyday. This recipe is inspired by her amazing bowls!

This oatmeal is the perfect breakfast for those colder winter mornings. After getting up and out of the house super early to drop Norah off at middle school, I love to come home to this cozy bowl of breakfast love.

I used cinnamon and ground ginger to flavor it up – two of my favorite anti-inflammatory spices! I love to add a little bit of honey and fresh fruit for a more natural sweet taste, but today I decided to step it up a notch and make a quick raspberry-ginger jam.

The raspberry-ginger jam is super easy to make and it’s the perfect complement to the cinnamon-ginger oatmeal. (I recommend you make a batch of this tasty jam and use it all week long!) It would be just as lovely on a slice of toast or a dollop or two atop pancakes, waffles or French toast.

I topped my bowl with fresh blackberries and pomegranate arils, and added some pumpkin seeds for a little crunch, but you can use whatever you have on hand! Sliced pear or apple word work, so would fresh blueberries. You could also add a spoon full of nut butter.  YUM!
