Throughout the year my breakfast during the work week generally rotates between oatmeal or a smoothie. I’ve been on an oatmeal kick for a while now and in previous years have always been a sweet oats person. Growing up I added brown sugar and in the last few years, peanut butter and some type of fruit. Almost a year ago I saw a story by Diane Morrisey on Instagram of her savory oat breakfast and decided to give it a try. I am hooked! I’ve tried many versions but this recipe is one of my favorite savory variations.
Unlike most of my recipes, this is only 1 serving so multiply as needed. If you do not like oatmeal or its texture, this is not the recipe for you. It still has the oatmeal texture, just savory flavors instead of sweet.
