A Family Favourite: An Oatmeal Breakfast Bar

Pin It Now!
I thought I would share one of our favourite breakfasts on cold winter mornings~

An oatmeal breakfast bar.
I started doing this a few years ago for my kids to 'up' the fun factor for breakfast.
The kids and I really like oatmeal....it's just fun to have different topping to change it up a bit.
It's a super easy project that takes little time.
You just  need a few jars, a pen and some labels.
Label the jars of oatmeal toppings.
Below are some of our favourite oatmeal toppings.
I try to keep it healthy~craisins, dried fruit, nuts & seeds & brown sugar.
But you could have any toppings you like!
Serve on a tray at the breakfast table.
You just need to add a pot of hot oatmeal and a small creamer of milk.
The kids love that they can add toppings to their oatmeal.
I love that they are eating something warm & healthy for their tummies.
We think it's a wonderful way to start the day.

I really like this idea! My youngest daughter loves oatmeal and my oldest not so much but maybe doing it this way she would.

This is a fantastic idea. I love oatmeal....I may have to copy this!!

This is a great idea! We have oatmeal almost every day, I make old-fashioned oats, or steel cut oats (my favorite) or the oats mixed with different grains. My husband always puts cinnamon in his and I use brown sugar and butter! I don't like milk!

I'm going to do a tray with jars like yours, love the idea! Thanks for sharing!

What a great idea and it makes it fun.

I love this idea!

Kids love to put meals together on their own.
Tacos are a favorite in our house. I've also tried make your own chicken soup where the broth is the base, then you can add chicken, noodles, carrots, celery, parsley, well, you get the idea. Kids loved that one too.

I would never have thought about this one, clever girl!

Like making an oatmeal sundae. What a great idea, everyone can just help themselves to whatever toppings they like. Love it, thanks so much for sharing.

This is so special. I hope to do something similar with a coffee/tea bar on a tray for when my crafty friends come over. Thanks for the details to help! I was on a search for the perfect tray but I love you just put a towel down to decorate it. Perfect!

So simple and yet such a sweet touch. It is a wonderful idea.

What a great idea! I'm going to try this for my grandsons the next time that they come for a visit. Thank you for sharing your charming idea. Cherry Kay

I love your idea--maybe I can get my kiddos to jump on the oatmeal bandwagon this way :)

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida said...

I love this idea and the lovely presentation. It would up the fun factor for me as well!

Kim said...

What a terrific idea. This could be used in lots of different ways. Plus, it keeps the kiddos' interest up.

Leslie said...

what fun. My older daughter would love that. Happy Halloween

Thanks for stopping by w/ the dinner advice - you have a great home and family, and so many creative ideas! Nice to meet ya! :)

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

I love this idea - will definitely have to do it. I could see apple sauce being a good addition, although you can't leave it out on the counter indefinitely.

Leanne said...

You always have such great ideas. Thanks for joining We're Organized Wednesday. Hope to see you at the next party.

Allison@Quaint Oaks said...

I absolutely love this idea! When we have guests over I usually put out bagels and cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers, dill and some red onion...but this is so much more cozy! I can't wait to have people over so I can set this up in the morning.

TracyL said...

Could you please tell me where you find that kind of jar? I went all over the place this weekend to no avail! Thanks!

Tanya Payzant said...

GREAT idea, Angie. My girls would love this!

Nancy said...

Great idea, I love oatmeal. I have a recipe for a baked one and it is so good also.
