Maple Trail Mix Oatmeal

I’ve warned you all before– I make a HUGE variety of oatmeal around here.  Perhaps it stems from some unwarranted mama-guilt over never buying the little flavored packets?  I don’t really know.  But I’m forever finding new ways to spice up the oatmeal routine.


Leftover from the “snacks & apps” I served up for A’s family party was about half a tray full of trail mix.  Though I’d been planning to make Maple Raisin Oatmeal for breakfast, my eyes fell on the tray.  Hmmm…


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup trail mix


Directions: Put water and oats on to boil.  As soon as boiling point is reached, reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.  Stir in maple syrup until well-mixed.  Fold in trail mix.

This variety of oatmeal was very well-received by my kiddos and seemed to really fill them up… I can see it becoming a winter standard and also a good “pre-hike” fall breakfast!


What’s your favorite flavor of oatmeal?
