Oatmeal is a beloved breakfast classic, and these simple Halloween breakfast ideas will only add a pinch of extra time to your morning routine:
- Banana Ghost Oatmeal - Start with your favourite oatmeal recipe, I used this banana porridge recipe. To make the spooky banana ghosts, slice a banana in half, down the centre and then in half again, through the middle (to form 4 banana pieces).
Lay two of these pieces, flat side down, on top of the oatmeal and bring them to life with mini chocolate chips for eyes and a raisin mouth.
- Monster Oatmeal - Begin with your preferred oatmeal recipe, filling your bowl ¾ full. Add some vibrant green smoothie for an eerie touch. To bring your monster to life you could place two edible eyes on top, but be cautious as they pose a choking hazard for children under four.
For a safer alternative create eyes using two large white chocolate drops with smaller dark drops atop them. Now you've got a breakfast that's monstrously delightful and safe for kids of all ages.
- Pumpkin Oatmeal - Again, use your favourite oatmeal recipe, and consider a pumpkin -infused variation. Swirl with some pumpkin puree or mango puree, for a delightful twist. Top with jack o' lantern faces by using half a mandarin or clementine as the pumpkin, chocolate chips for eyes and mouth, and a tiny piece of celery to represent the pumpkin stem.
- BLOODSHOT EYE OATMEAL - Craft a blood-curling breakfast using Banana oatmeal as your base. Top it off with banana slices, chia jam, and blueberries to create bloodshot eyes that will send shivers down your spine.
