Undetectable Spinach Oatmeal

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.

First day of spring break!! I got back from Seattle last night and it feels so good to be home. I had a great time on the trip, but there’s really nothing better than sleeping in my own bed. And enjoying Irish Breakfast Banana Bread Oatmeal for breakfast.

Irish Breakfast Banana Bread Oatmeal

This oatmeal was inspired by my spring break last year, when I traveled to New York with my dad for a couple days. He was there on business, and one of my best friends happened to be in NYC at the same time so she and I explored the city together.

We visited the theater where Hamilton was playing (right by my hotel!), walked through Central Park, and stopped for a snack at Bibble and Sip cafe.

The cafe was adorable and the menu was SO creative. I ordered the lavender latte and the Earl Grey banana bread. Both were delicious, and I wish I could go back this year.

But since I can’t get to New York, I’m bringing Bibble and Sip to me (and you) with this Irish Breakfast Banana Bread Oatmeal. I’m sure it would be delicious with Earl Grey too, but I just happened to have Irish Breakfast on hand.

This oatmeal is the perfect way to add tons of flavor and fun to your morning routine in under five minutes and using only four ingredients.

So what are you waiting for? Get to the kitchen! And if you make this oatmeal, be sure to comment and/or share with me on Instagram.
