30 Days of Oatmeal: Tart Ginger Strawberry

To be honest, I was aiming for a strawberry gingerbread flavor for this oatmeal. Traditionally, gingerbread contains molasses as a sweetener. I omitted it and ended up with a porridge stronger in the ginger flavor.

You know what, though? I actually liked the tart flavor. And this simple porridge lends itself to all kinds of potential toppings: almond butter, coconut, crushed ginger snaps, etc. Have fun with this one!


1/2 c quick cooking oats
1 c water
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t ginger
1/4 t cloves
1/2 c frozen strawberries, thawed


1. In a small sauce pan, combine oats and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low.
2. When oats reach desired consistency, stir in spices, and then fold in strawberries.
3. When strawberries are warm, transfer oats to a bowl and add toppings as desired.
