Girl Scout Oatmeal

As you may know, I am continually expanding the boundaries of oatmeal possibilities. For my first oatmeal endeavor, I aimed to eat a bowl of oats for every color of the rainbow. As evidenced by this post, I managed to span the color spectrum with relative ease. My next breakfast-time challenge was inspired by the annual arrival of Girl Scout Cookie season. In anticipation of the cookie season, my cravings for the sweet little rounds of joy reached maximum capacity…so I decided to make my own GS cookies–in my oatmeal bowl! I managed to keep most of my renditions relatively healthful, and all successfully satisfied my cookie cravings.



Thin Mints


Lemon Chalet Cremes


While I did not make a bowl for every GS cookie flavor, I did manage to re-create all my favorite varieties. What are your favorites? For those of you outside the US or simply have no idea what I am talking about, you can read up on Girl Scout cookies here.

Enjoy your evening!

    I used to be a FROZEN thin mint girl (keyword: frozen! That’s important!) but as I’ve gotten older, I’m all about the Samoas! A 2nd in either situation is the chocolate covered PB short bread ones🙂
