A few months ago, I posted my recipe for Undetectable Spinach Oatmeal on Instagram, and people went crazy for it. That’s what I love most about the food blogger/instagrammer community. I can share something delicious that most people in my life would consider weird and receive nothing but positivity.
Of course, I love being able to share about feelings and struggles and real life on Instagram, but it’s also great to have people that get excited about cinnamon and peanut butter and (undetectable) spinach in oatmeal.
This stuff is so good, I absolutely HAD to rave about it. And now, nearly four months later, I have to rave about it again. These oats are sweet and creamy from the cinnamon and the peanut butter. Though I love the flavor of spinach, I’m happy to report that it is entirely absent from this dish. Plus, the texture of the spinach blends in perfectly with the oats. Hence the name: Undetectable Spinach Oatmeal. Classic cozy oats AND some extra veggies.
Originally, I’d thought this recipe was too simple to post on the blog, but recently I’ve realized that simple recipes are all really I want. Obviously, I can’t be sure that everyone else is in the same boat, but I think it’s safe to say that lots of other people want easy, delicious, nourishing food. And this oatmeal delivers just that.
- ½ cup water
- ¼ cup almond milk
- ⅓ cup frozen spinach
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ½ tbsp peanut butter
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- Combine almond milk and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Add frozen spinach and lower heat to medium-low.
- Simmer until spinach is thawed.
- Add rolled oats to saucepan and cook over medium-low until oats absorb the liquid. (for me this takes about 5 minutes)
- Serve topped with peanut butter and cinnamon.
