Strawberry Cheesecake Oatmeal

I didn’t really notice it until now, but apparently oatmeal is my go-to fall breakfast!  Lately I just can’t get enough.

I saw this recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake Oatmeal on my favorite Food Network show-The Kitchen-and had to give it a try.  The combination of cream cheese and strawberries really got my cravings going for some reason…and I’m okay with that!

Strawberry Cheesecake Oatmeal

Servings 1 bowl


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water or milk
  • 1 heaping tablespoon whipped cream cheese
  • 1 heaping tablespoon strawberry preserves
  • crushed graham crackers for sprinkling on top


  1. Add the water or milk (whatever your preference) to the oats and cook in microwave for 1 min 30 seconds

  2. Stir in cream cheese

  3. Top with strawberry preserves and crushed graham crackers

This was delicious and actually filled me up, which is sometimes hard for me when it comes to oatmeal.

Of course, all items were purchased at my favorite grocery store, Aldi, so this can make an easy breakfast that won’t break your grocery budget!
