Mornings are rough. We recently moved and my alarm goes off at 5:40 AM so I can get a certain high schooler out the door on time. I really didn’t know 5:40 existed on a clock twice a day until now. LOL. At that time of the morning the only co-ordinated functional thing I can do is walk to my Keurig to make a cup of coffee and this simple Caramel Mocha Latte Oatmeal.
Yes, coffee + oatmeal (made with Keurig) = AMAZING!
So this is my little coffee spot in the new house. Nothing too fancy. It’s just the place that I hit before anything else in the morning. What you can’t see is there is a little cabinet above my keurig where I keep oatmeal. It’s ready to go for mornings when I need to multitask and have coffee and breakfast in one bowl.
I measure out 1/2 cup of oats into a bowl. You can use the plain oatmeal packets if you would rather. Totally up to you.
I quite literally brew my coffee right into my oatmeal. 1/2 cup of dry minute oats to 8 oz of coffee. If you choose to brew your own coffee and not use a Keurig those are the measurements you are going to want.
Now comes my favorite part. I add in a tablespoon or two of semi sweet chocolate chips and stir. The heat from the oatmeal melts them and swirls them in. I mean, coffee and chocolate are all a girl really needs right?
I almost forget. The best secret ingredient know to man! International Delight Simply Pure Caramel Creamer. OMG! This stuff! This is the stuff dreams are made of. You can check out more info on International Delight Simply Pure and even sign up for coupons. You can also check the product finder to see which store near you carries it.
The ingredient list is short and simple. Milk, Sugar, Cream, and Natural Flavor. It is perfect for this simple breakfast. I add a couple tablespoons. The sweetness from the chocolate chips and creamer is enough for me, but if you want to add a little sugar to your oatmeal I won’t judge.
