Tropical Oatmeal – Bring Your Best Bowl

I have written before about how much I love oatmeal for my weekday breakfasts, so I wanted to share a wonderful oatmeal recipe I made with Quaker® Oats. This tropical version of my breakfast oatmeal has fresh mango and fragrant toasted coconut flakes, along with filling chia seeds and flavorful agave syrup. This combination of flavors is enough to wake me up in the morning, and the oatmeal and chia are enough to give me energy until lunch time. I think the tropical flavor combination speaks to me now because I miss hot weather, I miss the beach, and I miss all things mango and coconut flavored. This tropical oatmeal is so delicious that I decided to enter it in the national Bring Your Best Bowl sweepstakes from Quaker® Oats.

The Bring Your Best Bowl sweepstakes is going on until March 12, 2016, and you can enter any oatmeal bowl recipe that contains 2-5 ingredients (other than the oatmeal and the milk). If I do my math right, there is pretty much an endless number of possible ingredient combinations (OK OK, so I didn’t really do any math), and that is pretty awesome! Your oatmeal bowl can be worth $250,000 if you win. And on top of that, your flavor combination could be created by Quaker® Oats and sold in stores in the Fall of 2016!

So obviously, I was excited to enter my Oatmeal Bowl in this sweepstakes.  It is very easy to enter your best bowl – you do not need to be a food blogger and you do not need to submit any photos. So go ahead and go crazy with your submissions – submit any flavor combinations that sound good to you, sweet or savory!

You can enter the National Bring Your Best Bowl Sweepstakes here. But in the meantime, stop by your local Walmart and pick up all the ingredients that you need for the recipe below. If this tropical bowl of oatmeal does not inspire you, there are a ton of Quaker® Oats flavors at Walmart, from Maple Brown Sugar to different variety packs.

  1. Do you know how we often call rolled oats here in Greece? Quaker! The brand has been synonymous with the product:) And you recipe is another excellent way to enjoy some oats. The benefits of oats consumption are countless so we try to include them in our diet (even though Mirella isn’t a huge fan of oats) 🙂
    Thanx so much!
