12 Crave-Worthy Oatmeal Recipes For The Holidays

Cozy up with some delicious comfort food before you head out to face the seasonal sweater weather.

12 Crave-Worthy Oatmeal Recipes For The Holidays

If you haven't started embracing fall yet, now is the time to start. Whether you're living somewhere where it gets cold during the last months of the year or somewhere warmer, fall and winter are still the best times to dive into these seasonal, festive flavors.

Oatmeal is an amazing comfort food during these cold months too because it's warm and usually pretty simple to make. For those skeptical or unimpressed by the oatmeal hype, let me just tell you that oatmeal can be so much more than a pile of mush. Sure, if you want a pile of mush, it's really not that hard to get there, but when it comes to oatmeal, there are endless flavor possibilities.

Some of the recipes I've compiled here require quite a few ingredients, but I tried to keep most of the recipes simple for anyone cooking out of a college dorm or on a budget. You can also omit or modify some of the ingredients, though you'd be doing so at your own risk. Testing your own throw-things-in-a-bowl oatmeal recipes can be fun, but if you want something that's all but guaranteed to be delicious, being able to turn to a nice, cozy recipe is a blessing.

1. Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats

7. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal

This way you don't have to sacrifice the chocolate for the pumpkin. And if you're not a huge fan of pumpkin, well, at least there's chocolate—am I right?

Recipe by Chocolate Covered Katie.

8. Slow Cooker Eggnog Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Yeah, you could always pour some eggnog over some dry oats, microwave it and hope for the best, but at least following a recipe will make the oatmeal more likely to end up in your stomach rather than down the drain followed by a trail of tears.

Recipe by Sweet Anna's.

9. Pancake Oatmeal

Not exactly a fall-themed recipe per say, but I saw "Pancake Oatmeal," became intrigued, and thought I should share. Not sure how much it will taste like pancakes, but then again how do you really describe what pancakes taste like....?

Recipe by Mr. Breakfast.

10. Peppermint Mocha Oatmeal

Chocolate oatmeal really is that good. And peppermint? Definitely a must-try.

Recipe by Breakfast Drama Queen.

11. Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

Recipe by Mother Thyme.

And lastly...

12. Classic Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

For when you just want that simple fall taste.

Recipe by My Darling Vegan.

If you're still not impressed, you could always try baking or microwaving your favorite oatmeal cookie dough recipe and see what happens. As long as it's in a bowl, no one has to know you're literally eating cookies for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner.

We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
