I’m going to tell you guys right off the bat…this is the! Out of all the recipes I’ve come up with lately, this is my favorite. It’s healthy, cheap to make, & tastes like a beloved Christmas cookie. What’s not love here folks?

I should be upfront and let y’all know that I am in a love affair with oatmeal.  Oatmeal is friendly on the old pocketbook. It’s Christmas, and y’all better believe we need cheap food at Casa de Daughery! Besides being cheap, oatmeal is healthy! Oatmeal can lower cholesterol, reduce the chance of breast cancer, lower blood pressure, keep arteries from hardening, boost the immune system, stabilize blood sugar, and about 50 other great things. Oh, I almost forgot (face palm) …it shrinks the waistline!!!

Phew, now that I’ve hopefully convinced you to eat your oats let me tell you about this recipe. It is hands down my favorite oatmeal variation ever! It’s cake like and tastes like a beloved Christmas cookie. Folks, this oatmeal is delicious…no,no…it is scrumptious. This recipe came from my need to make an oatmeal that my son would love and not just tolerate. I decided to take a healthy cookie recipe & combine it with my favorite way to eat oatmeal. From this mash-up, Gingerbread Cookie Oatmeal was born. Ching, Ching, JACKPOT! The little dude loves it!


3-5 tbs of homemade truvia (amount depends on how sweet you like it)

2 cups of rolled oats

1 cup of almond milk

1 1/2 tsp of aluminum free baking powder

1/3 cup of egg whites (vegans-you can leave these out. I made it once without, & it’s still good. I just added extra molasses for the vegan version.

1/2 tbs so cinnamom

1 tbs of ginger

1 1/2 tbs of molasses

1/2 tsp of cloves

1 tsp of coconut oil

1 tsp of vanilla

1/2 tsp of salt



Soak oats in almond milk. Overnight is best, but I forgot and only soaked for 30 minutes. After oats are soaked, mix all ingredients together. Place in a greased 8″ square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-3O minutes. Serve warm. I topped mine with sugar free syrup and some fruit. My son liked his with homemade sweetened whip cream. The hubs liked it plain.
