There’s nothing better on a cold day than a nice warm bowl of comforting oatmeal.  Well..perhaps the only thing better would be this Snickerdoodle Oatmeal!  Combining one of my favorite breakfast meals with a dessert snack is always a good idea.  Besides, it’s oatmeal, so that means that whatever I add to it, it will still be healthy right?

This comforting, snickerdoodle flavored oatmeal is perfect to warm you up in the mornings.

For this recipe I added milk to the oatmeal, I used the two percent that I had on hand, I would have used Almond Milk if I had some, I enjoy the Vanilla flavor in my oatmeal, it’s a special treat.  Or on a normal day I just add water.  For this recipe I used milk, it just makes it a little more enjoyable and comforting, but if you’re not able to do milk, or prefer something else, don’t let this stop you!  Just substitute your preferred milk, or even water.

This comforting, snickerdoodle flavored oatmeal is perfect to warm you up in the mornings.

And of course I topped it off as I would any snickerdoodle.  With a lovely combination of sugar and cinnamon.  Feel free to reapply as you eat the oatmeal, it’s more than possible I reapplied a few times.  Again, if you’re counting the calories or sugar intake, you can feel free to leave that part out.

    1. Sorry for the confusion, snickerdoodle is a cinnamon sugar cookie, this oatmeal is a play on those flavors. Not on a snickers candy bar.

  1. I made this today and found that your ratio is off. I would switch the oatmeal to milk. I found this recipe to be extremely dry. Great flavor profile, but oatmeal to milk ratio should be 1:2.

    1. Hi Kelly 🙂 I typically have Rolled Oats, also known as Old Fashioned Oats, on hand so that’s what I used. You could substitute another kind of oats for the recipe, but just make sure you alter the cooking to match the oats you’re using and add in the snickerdoodle flavoring!

  2. I love how easily this comes together! And, plus, snickerdoodle! The perfect comforting breakfast on a chilly morning 🙂

  3. What a fun and delicious take on oatmeal! I love how creamy oatmeal is when made with milk – I like to use part milk and part water. The cinnamon-sugar sprinkle seems totally necessary in this Snickerdoodle Oatmeal! 🙂
