My family is a huge fan of oatmeal especially in the winter. I should buy stock in Quaker® Oats, especially their old fashioned oats since we go through it so quickly with my oatmeal and granola recipes. Consuming enough fiber for breakfast is definitely NOT an issue for our family! I came up with this unique oatmeal recipe because of a. Quaker® Oats National “Bring Your Best Bowl” Contest (see details below-you can enter too!); b. I LOVE chocolate obviously; and c. I wanted to give pomegranate seeds a try!
If you’re feeling inspired by the oatmeal recipe I’ve created, you could also enter to win $250,000 in the national Quaker® Oatmeal sweepstakes of “Bring Your Best Bowl” contest (top entries will be created and sold in stores in Fall 2016). Your recipe must have between 2 and 5 ingredients and remain IN the bowl. The contest ends March 12, 2016 and the winner is announced November 2016. Check out details here about the sweepstakes as well as the National Sweepstakes Rules. Good luck coming up with your own creative Quaker® Oatmeal recipe!
This recipe has 4 delicious mix-ins including maple syrup, dark chocolate chunks, slivered almonds and pomegranate arils.
I cooked the oatmeal first then added the mix-ins. I prefer to use the microwave when making oatmeal but of course feel free to use the stove top.
Oats are an excellent source of fiber and contain 100% whole grain oats. An easy way to get a jump start on your fiber intake for the day!
I am fairly new to the pomegranate fruit which is one reason I thought I’d add them to this oatmeal recipe. I used frozen pomegranate arils for the convenience but of course you can purchase whole pomegranates it just takes a bit more effort to extract the arils and seeds. Arils are actually the pods in which the seeds sit, which of course you can eat the entire aril and seed. Pomegranate seeds are rich in the antioxidant vitamin C as well as potassium.
I purchased all my ingredients for this oatmeal at my local Kroger store. We just had a huge new Kroger open about 2 miles from my house so I was thrilled to check it out!
I hope you enjoy this unique oatmeal recipe as much as I did! Let me know what you think!
