This Brown Sugar Oatmeal recipe makes the best, creamiest oatmeal ever. A nourishing, satisfying breakfast that requires only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes to make!
This simple oatmeal recipe using basic ingredients that you probably already have on hand in the kitchen, such as milk, egg, brown sugar, butter and rolled oats. I know that it’s not common to see an egg in the ingredient list for an oatmeal recipe, but it adds so much richness and creaminess to texture of the oatmeal. The egg also adds a boost of protein and makes it a power breakfast that will keep you feeling full all morning!
The base recipe is perfect on its own, but feel free to add a splash of vanilla or a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to customize the flavor to your liking. Some ideas for toppings are: Fresh or dried fruit, chopped nuts, seeds, chocolate chips, shredded coconut and peanut butter. For the photos in this post, I topped the oatmeal with fresh blackberries, chopped almonds and an extra sprinkle of brown sugar.
