Our family has so many Christmas traditions I don’t even know where to begin. I love Christmas because of the traditions and the time we get to spend together! One of the best traditions is our awesome breakfast foods for Christmas morning! I’m going to show you my favorite Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal! I had to go shopping for some of the necessities! I ran into the Big Lots thinking that I was in a hurry and went straight for the food aisle; I grabbed the Maple Syrup, oatmeal and brown sugar.  Then I once I got there I couldn’t stop, I wandered up and down each aisle and it avalanched from there.




 As I wandered up and down all of the aisles I found an 8×8 square pan and a hand mixer which obviously I needed. Then I stopped to talk to one of the employees and she pointed out that they have some really cute decorations so I had to buy a bunch of those! The holiday season is coming up fast and Big Lots has everything you need to prepare for holiday baking season and and to check more off of your list at a great value. My sister always raves about Big Lots and I just am getting addicted to it now myself. Look below for my delicious Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal Recipe!

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 stick salted butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cup milk

  2. I’m obsessed with oatmeal so I’m always looking for new ways to make it. I’ll have to give this one a try.

    Our xmas traditions consist of making sure the tree/decorations go up the day after thanksgiving and planning out Elf on the Shelf strategy by the end of November.

    I haven’t been in Big Lots in a while. They. do always have good deals!

  3. Oatmeal is great for breakfast. In fact, I had carrot-raisin oatmeal this morning. Brown Maple Sugar Oatmeal is delicious. I will definitely try your recipe the next time I have oatmeal.

  4. This looks like the perfect dessert to have during the Holidays especially if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to pie or cake! I love oatmeal and I’m definitely keeping this recipe.

  5. I really need to give this a shot. I am not a huge fan of regular oatmeal in the bowl but this looks amazing.
