Eggnog White Chocolate Oatmeal

This Eggnog White Chocolate Oatmeal with an extra dash of nutmeg is a delicious and festive way to enjoy your lazy morning on a Christmas day.

Eggnog White Chocolate Oatmeal

Hello, everyone. How’s your week going so far? How many cookies have you eaten? If your answer is “None”, well your week could have been better!

I have two exciting news today. First of all, I am going to keep it super simple today (Yes, I use this phrase the way too often), but I have a solid excuse. I plan on sharing many Christmas ideas during the next two weeks (5 or even 6 recipes instead of 4), and that’s the example when quantity beats quality. I don’t mean the quality of my recent recipes, though (Did you check these Mini Gingerbread Layer Cakes by the way?) But I am certainly going to keep the texts short. Please don’t be mad at me.

The second news is that I’ve brought a delightful recipe today. Please welcome the Eggnog White Chocolate Oatmeal.

Pudding – Alice. Alice – Pudding.

Folks – Christmas Oatmeal. Christmas Oatmeal – Folks.

It’s insanely rich, decadent, delicious, and so festive. I won’t lie: this is not your regular oatmeal you should eat all year round. That’s not a healthy version either. But that’s the Christmas season, after all! So keep your overnight oats with chia seeds for January 2nd, and let’s enjoy this Eggnog White Chocolate Oatmeal today (And tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow).

And the addition of white chocolate? Not only does it complement well to eggnog, but it also introduces an amazingly luxurious and velvety texture. However, keep in mind that eggnog and white chocolate make a very sweet combo, so you might wish to omit the chocolate part (That would be rather sad, though). On the other hand, treat this Eggnog White Chocolate Oatmeal as a dessert for breakfast. It’s also very lovely when cooled, like a pudding. And for God’s sake, don’t count your calories today. Way too risky. And unnecessary.

Cheers and see you soon.

  1. I’ve had too many cookies, so I’d say my week is going just fine! ;) I am loving this oatmeal, Ben! While I don’t like drinking eggnog, I DO like eggnog IN all the things! I’m weird, I know. But I think it adds such a lovely flavor! I can only imagine how delicious it is in this oatmeal! Plus you added my favorite thing in life – white chocolate! I mean, this is just a breakfast must make! Cheers!

  2. I confess to you Ben that this week I have eaten quite a few cookies and I don’t think that amount will decrease over the next few weeks! Oh well, it is THE season after all! As a huge fan of oatmeal the fact that you’ve added white chocolate in this recipe is fantastic! Bring it on!!

  3. I get so tired of plain old oatmeal, so this is a delicious and perfectly holiday-themed way to make it a bit more exciting!! It doesn’t matter if it adds extra calories, the fact that it’s oatmeal means it’s still healthy ;) Can’t wait to try!

  4. Well, way to go in allowing me to have a decadent treat for breakfast because oatmeal is healthy, right? Never mind the eggnog and white chocolate ;) Love all the flavours goin’ on here and can only imagine how lovely this would be first thing Christmas morning with a couple cups of coffee! P.S. calories don’t count during holidays…that’s my story and I’m sticking to it :)
