Sweet Pineapple Oatmeal

Fresh pineapple is so, so good. Isn’t it? When it’s ripe and not burning your mouth off, it’s wonderful. And, recently, we’ve found out that it’s mega delicious in oatmeal! (What isn’t delicious in oatmeal, really?!) Usually, I’m the Oatmeal Queen around here (with baked oatmeal being my fave thing ever). But Husband has been making this stovetop pineapple oatmeal lately, and I’m so thankful because it’s amazing and simple.

Sweet, creamy oatmeal with pineapple for added nutrition and flavor! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #pineapple #oatmeal #breakfast

When Husband first mentioned putting pineapple in oatmeal, I wasn’t sure I’d like it (which seems silly now). But I really do! And I hope you do too when you give it a shot. Because the flavor combination with the nondairy milk, especially the homemade cashew milk we made last week, is actually amazing. You’ll see!

As I’m sure you know, we looooove oatmeal around here. I usually enjoy it in baked form, but I can get down with oatmeal like this too. I also love other kinds of breakfast though! blueberry chia seed pudding, breakfast cookies, sweet potato carrot cake muffins, peanut butter granola, and baked chocolate donuts. Seriously, breakfast is one of my favorite meals! So check those out. 🙂

Recipe Notes

*This recipe is based on making this homemade cashew milk for the milk (and adding another 1/4 cup cashews for extra creaminess). You can make it with other nuts or use store-bought nondairy milk, but I can't guarantee that the results will be the same as the one we make.
