Benefits Of Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of the healthiest grains you can eat! It has many health benefits, including:

  • Being high in fiber
  • It’s rich in antioxidants
  • It can lower your cholesterol
  • It can protect your good cholesterol
  • It’s filling, which is great for helping you eat less (if that’s your goal)
  • Might help reduce blood pressure
  • All that fiber helps possibly protect against colon cancer

What You’ll Need

4cupswater – Use the best quality water you have. Heavily chlorinated tap water will affect the flavor here.

2cupold fashion oats – Use old fashioned, not quick cooking oats. You can use steel cut if you prefer, but then only use 1 cup of steel cut oats. And if you go this route, you may want to double up on the oats and water because the spices will be pretty strong.

1 ½tbsp.ground cinnamon

¼tsp.ground coriander

¼tsp.ground cloves

¼tsp.ground ginger

¼tsp.ground allspice

¼tsp.ground cardamom

⅛tsp.ground nutmeg

Sweetener – Add this after cooking. Use whatever sweetener you are most comfortable with and add as much or as little as you like.

Stir occasionally until the oats are done. Stir in your sweetener to taste and serve.

How Long Will Gingerbread Oatmeal Last?

As with most types of oatmeal, this will last about 3 days in the fridge. Make sure to pack it in an air-tight container and label it if you have other flavors of oatmeal in your fridge already.

Can You Freeze Gingerbread Oatmeal?

Absolutely! I like to freeze mine in large muffin tins so I have single serving sizes I can just pop out. Once they are frozen, I transfer the little pucks of oatmeal into a freezer-safe, zipper-top bag.

This oatmeal will freeze for up to 3 months. So don’t forget to label your storage container or package with both the date you made it and how long it will last. I always forget to do those and having both pieces of information is so helpful when something has been in the freezer a while!

How To Reheat Gingerbread Oatmeal

From frozen – Thaw overnight in the fridge, or thaw in a microwave on the thaw setting for a faster process. Don’t overdo it in the microwave though, or it will dry out the oats a lot, making them pretty inedible.

From cold – Add a splash of milk to give it some moisture and reheat, either on the stove top in a pot, or in a microwave for a minute or two. Again, don’t overdo the microwaving. You may need to add a little extra milk to keep things from drying out in the microwave.
