Berry-licious Pomegranate Oatmeal

5 WWPP Posted by 8 years ago 21 Comments

I couldn’t help myself, I took my hand at another Oatmeal flavor. This time taking the tea idea and going for more flavor!

The toddler and I cleaned our traditional morning Pomegranate (we do it at least once a week) and the idea smacked me in the face! Why not top some berry flavored oatmeal with theses!

So glad I did! SO YUMMY and it didn’t need any sweeteners! NOTHING! I may have to rethink the oatmeal contest now. What do you guys think? This or the Trail Blazin’ Oats? Which one should I enter? Of course if I go with this I’ll have to up the oatmeal to 3/4 of a cup, but that’s cool. It would still work. Berry-licious Pomegranate Oatmeal

Ohh Decisions! I hate decisions. I REALLY want to win. LOL

  • 1/2 cup (40g) Quick Oats
  • 6 oz boiling water
  • 1 berry flavored Green Tea Bag (see image below)
  • 1 oz (28g) of pomegranate seeds
  • About a tsp of fresh orange peel
  • 3-4 fresh mint leaves chopped

Seep the tea bag in boiling water for 2 minutes. You can do this directly in the bowl if you like. Remove the tea bag. Be sure to squeeze extra water out before discarding.

Add the oatmeal to the bowl. Stir and let it sit for a few minutes while preparing the rest of the ingredients.

Top the oatmeal with the seeds, orange peel and mint.

ENJOY!

Simple, right?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I haven't tried either one, but this one sounds more original. The pomegranate, orange peel, and mint sounds really tasty, I'm going to have to give this a try.

    i love pomegranate green tea, so this seems right up my alley ;-)

    And it's got that color appeal too -- just gorgeous. I'd serve orange slices on the side, so not to waste.

    Ahh the oranges went into the toddler's lunch! There's no WAY I'm wasting an orange just for the peel! LOL

    I vote for this one, Roni. Pomegranates are "in" these days so that will give it the popular appeal, and it looks beautiful. I'm sure it tastes wonderful too! And wasn't the other one more points? So that is also appealing to me about this one.

    Definitely the trailblazin' one... though I think this one looks YUMMY too!

    sounds great.. however the pomegranates take forever to prepare..

    I vote for this one, especially since the health benefits of pomegranates have been reported all over the place lately. Seems to make a good pairing with the health benefits from oatmeal. Good luck!

    Yum. Now this is right up my alley. I agree with everyone else....it is so pretty. :-)

    I'm sure you mean "squeeze" rather than "squeezing." You probably didn't realize you were cutting and pasting a typo from your previous post.

    What did you end up submitting? I didn't come by to stalk your recipes until I was done--I only had one idea, lemon poppyseed "muffin" oatmeal: just lemon juice, sugar, poppy seeds, and almond extract. Tasty! But yours were very creative and beautifully photographed!

    Hey Mo! Can I call you Mo? :~P I went with this one. It was tastier, lighter and more seasonal. Plus it got more votes on twitter. :~) Lemon poppy is genius! I hope they collect and shoot out all the ideas so we can see them.

    This one is super creative and I can't wait to try it. I called mine "Oat of the Ordinary"--had to go with an oat pun!

    Hee. And you can call me Mo anytime!

    I think both look really good, but the trail blazin oats seems more "accessible"--the ingredients are all easy to find whereever and whenever, the ingredients are less expensive, and I think the recipe will appeal to more populations (i.e. kids). I think both should be in your cookbook though! YUM!

    I think both are contenders but I'm leaning more towards your first creation.

    This recipe sounds so good...I didn’t have any pomegranates so I tweaked it a bit. I used fresh blueberries and Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry tea. The orange peel tastes so good with the blueberries. I also added a little cinnamon but its fine without it. Thanks for the recipe I love pomegranate so I can’t wait to try it.
