Key Lime Pie Oatmeal

Key Lime Pie Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1/4 cup steel-cut rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 graham cracker - crushed
This recipe was submitted in 2011. I've made changes to it since and I think it is really, really good now. All changes are reflected in the current ingredient list and instructions. In it's original incarnation, the oatmeal was okay, but not greatly reminiscent of the flavor of key lime pie. So I looked at key lime pie recipes to see how I might update this oatmeal recipe. I added a touch of sweetened condensed milk and butter and doubled the amount of lime juice. Rather than a previous topping of sugar and flour (weird), I'm recommending that you top each serving with crumbled graham cracker (to emulate a graham cracker crust) and whipped cream if you have it. A little lemon zest is also a nice touch. Now, this oatmeal really does bring to mind the flavors of that great pie. I hope you'll agree. (This recipe was tested and photographed in February 2014.)

How To Make Key Lime Pie Oatmeal

Bring the milk and water to a rolling boil in a saucepan. Add the oats and allow to boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook 30 more minutes - stirring every 10 minutes.

Remove oatmeal from heat and stir in lime juice, condensed milk, butter and honey.

Transfer oatmeal to a bowl and top with crushed graham cracker.

It doesn't make a crumble, he said to USE crumbled graham crackers. Also, Your comment doesn't help with THIS recipe since you added a bunch of ingredients, then said you might not make it again. You haven't made it yet... not the way it's meant to be anyway. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. Perfect pick-me-up for daylight-savings. I'm always so grumpy getting up an hour early! Thanks Mr. Breakfast :D

As I was cooking this, I wondered if the lime juice would curdle the milk... it did not, but I did add a ton of brown sugar, more honey, cinnamon, and golden raisins. Also added cinnamon to the topping mix which leaves out butter as the binding ingredient. It came out okay, but not sure I would make it again.

I do not see how this makes a "crumble"?
