At first, the thought of combining coffee creamer and oats may not sound very appealing or even plausible. After all — coffee creamer is marketed as having a specific purpose, which is being added to coffee. However, its rich and creamy disposition and slight sweetness make it the perfect pairing with your oatmeal. In addition to this, coffee creamer adds a thick textural element to the oats which can make the dish more hearty and filling.
This little trick is also versatile. You could experiment with different flavors of coffee creamer depending on your preferences and moods. Hazelnut is a popular choice, as is vanilla, coconut, and when the season is right, even pumpkin spice. Just add 1 or 2 tablespoons of creamer depending on how sweet you would like your oats to be. Be sure to adjust the amount of other milk used accordingly. Coffee creamer can also be included as part of the liquid ingredients for overnight oats, adding a punch of flavor and sweetness, if you prefer your oats cold.
