Pineapple upside down oatmeal recipe

I’m not really a cake girl. When I reach for dessert (which is more often than I care to admit), I go for chewy oatmeal raisin cookies or dark chocolate brownies first. But there is one cake that I can’t get enough of: pineapple upside down cake! Obviously I can’t shouldn’t eat that for breakfast every morning. So I came up with this oatmeal recipe that combines all my favorite flavors of pineapple upside down yummyness into a healthy breakfast choice!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup oats

1 cup water

2-3 pineapple rings or a few chunks of fresh pineapple

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 TBSP brown sugar

A pinch of allspice or cinnamon

 

Heat the water on the stove and stir in the oats. Once they are fully cooked, remove from heat. Mix in the vanilla extract, brown sugar, and allspice/cinnamon. Toss in the pineapple rings. Voila! One delicious serving of pineapple upside down oatmeal! No better way to start your day in my book : )

  1. Your recipe is really creative, and it looks so tasty! I’ll have to keep that in mind the next time I’m tempted to eat coffee cake for breakfast. (And I agree, dark chocolate brownies are always a yummy dessert!)
