Explore Exciting Breakfast Trends!


Oatmeal, the beloved breakfast staple, is making a remarkable comeback in the world of healthy eating. Don't be fooled by its seemingly simple nature - this powerhouse cereal has so much more to offer!


At Dole, we believe in embracing deliciousness and healthfulness. Our collection of oatmeal recipes features exciting ingredients like pineapple, dried mango, and coconut, guaranteeing a creative and constantly evolving breakfast experience. Say goodbye to boring breakfasts and say hello to a refreshing bowl of fruity oatmeal.


What exactly is oatmeal? It's simply cooked oats, originating from Scotland where it was enjoyed for breakfast and other meals. Traditionally, it consists of rolled oats or oat bran, water, and salt. Nowadays, the recipe can be customized with water, milk, or milk alternatives. The oats are boiled briefly and sweetened with honey, cinnamon, or syrup and often topped with fresh fruit. 


As oats gain popularity, you may find different varieties on grocery store shelves. The heartiest among them are steel cut oats, with a round dense shape that requires the longest cooking time of about 40 minutes. Rolled oats, on the other hand, are flattened by large rollers and can be used in various recipes. Lastly, quick oats are a further chopped version of rolled oats, resulting in a much shorter cook time. All three types are nutrient-dense additions to your breakfast routine. However, be cautious with flavored oats as they often contain added sugars.


Is oatmeal really as healthy as they say? Packed with essential vitamins and minerals like biotin, zinc, and vitamins B1 and B6, this hearty breakfast option will fuel your active lifestyle. Oatmeal is also a good source of iron and magnesium, providing the nutrients your body needs to strengthen muscles. Plus, the fiber in oats will keep you satisfied for longer and promote healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Add some fruit and other wholesome ingredients, and oatmeal becomes a true powerhouse meal.


First up, we have DIY Gift Jars filled with Tropical-Cranberry Overnight Oats. These jars are the perfect gift for your loved ones, or simply a fun way to switch up your own breakfast routine. The oats are flavored with unsweetened coconut flakes, chopped sweetened dried mango, and unsweetened dried cranberries for a sweet and tropical taste.


Next, try making our overnight Wake Up Oats for a hearty and healthy breakfast. The recipe calls for rolled oats, almond milk, ground chia seeds, DOLE® bananas, ground cinnamon, berries, nuts, and optional honey. With a perfect blend of crunch, sweetness, and creaminess, this recipe is sure to become a breakfast staple in your household.


Finally, add some tropical flair to your breakfast routine with Blended Hawaiian Baked Oats. Made with gluten-free rolled oats, lite coconut milk, bananas, non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt, and fresh pineapple, these baked oats are a dreamy way to start your day.


So, whether you're in the mood for something tropical, sweet, or hearty, these breakfast recipes are sure to satisfy.
