Oreo Cookies and Cream Oatmeal

Cookies and Cream Oatmeal

A hard to find recipe online so thought I’d create one. This recipe isn’t very sweet, but refer to the Recipe Notes for some tips on making it sweeter or a stronger Oreo taste.

This recipe can easily be altered based on the number of people, I did a ratio of 3 Oreos per person.  In my recipe notes below, I suggest doing 4 Oreos per person if you want a sweeter/stronger Oreo taste in your oatmeal.

When crushing the Oreos I used a plastic bag and a heavy knife.  Made the process much easier than a food processor, which would make of cookie crumbs instead of the crushed pieces that we wanted for this.  The Vanilla I have was purchased from Amazon, which was cheap for a non-imitation vanilla in this quantity.

  1. Heat the milk in a medium saucepan.

  2. While that’s heating up, separate the cream filling from the Oreos, and put wafers in a small plastic bag.  Crush the wafers until the largest pieces are about 1/4" in size.

  3. Once milk reaches a boil, reduce to a simmer and add in the oats, vanilla, sugar and Oreo cream filling.

  4. Cook for 5 minutes or until oats are of the consistency you want.  Oatmeal will still look liquidy.

  5. Let oatmeal cool and thicken off the burner for about 3 minutes.

  6. Mix in crushed Oreo wafers, and serve. Garnish with half an Oreo.

Recipe Notes
  • For a one person serving divide the recipe in half.
  • For a sweeter taste, add an extra two Oreos and 1/2 tablespoon of sugar instead of 1 teaspoon.

    Really enjoyed the simplicity of this and the strong taste of the oreo cookies and cream in the oatmeal. Very well balanced, the only thing I could think of would maybe add some powdered sugar instead of granulated since it’ll melt better with the cream from the oreos.

    Found this after Googling for hours on some fun Oatmeal recipes because my son wanted cookies and cream oatmeal. Oreo only had cookie recipes, but was able to find something that would be kind of healthy and was tasty!
