Rich & Creamy French Vanilla Pecan Oatmeal

Rich & Creamy French Vanilla Pecan Oatmeal 

When the cold weather hits, there is nothing I love more for breakfast than oatmeal.  I use to make a basic quick oat with brown sugar, maple syrup and maybe some raisins.  It was my go to in the morning. Then one morning I decided to add a spoonful of my homemade applesauce. It was amazing. Just that simple addition took it to a whole new level.  I was hooked. Not on the applesauce oatmeal,  but on trying new flavors!

Next up,  this creamy oatmeal that is full of sweet and crunchy , but is also good for you.  Cranberries, pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg and of course my not so secret ingredient.  French Vanilla Creamer!  I think I bake/cook with my flavored coffee creamers more than I use them in coffee.  Try it out and let us know how much you love it.
