Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

I have made my kids many different kinds of oatmeal over the years but I have to say: this one exceeds them all!  They all loved it!  It definitely tastes just like a cinnamon roll; from the cinnamon sweet goodness of the oatmeal, right down to the sweet cream cheese sauce on the top.  This will become a favorite and a  staple in your list of morning breakfast recipes.

Ingredients for oats:

  • 5 c milk
  • 3 c quick cook oats
  • 1/2 c brown sugar, packed
  • 2 T cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Ingredients for icing/cream:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 c powered sugar or I used confectioners swerve
  • 2 T milk

1. Over medium heat, bring milk and salt to a low boil.
2. Add the oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon to the milk and stir often. It will only take about 5 minutes for the oats to soften.
3. While oats are cooking, make the icing/cream.
4. Add the cream cheese to standing mixer and mix until smooth.
5. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar.
6. Add the milk slowly until it is a thin consistency, able to drip off of a spoon.
7. Add the oatmeal to a bowl and drizzle on the icing.
8. Serve immediately and enjoy!
