Let’s chat about grapes.  Yes, that’s right– those sweet little balls of juicy wonderfulness.  Leave them alone– they’re the perfect snack.  Pop them in the freezer, and they become refreshing sweet and sour icy bites.  Let them ferment, and they turn into glorious, decadent wine.  Recently, though– I’ve been grape-obsessed– and not with plain, frozen, OR fermented grapes.  My current grape infatuation is with roasted grapes– grapes that have been heated in the oven until the juices sweeten and the grapes burst into a miraculously fabulous topping.  This recipe for Roasted Grape Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast– hot, creamy oats topped with the flavor-packed grapes, all ready in about a half hour.

To make these tasty bowls of grape-filled deliciousness, start by roasting the grapes.  Remove the grapes from their stems, toss them in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and rosemary, and then lay them out on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Bake them for 25-30 minutes, or until the skins begin to blister and soften.

While the grapes are roasting, prepare your oatmeal.  I prefer steel cut oats,* which take about 25 minutes to cook on the stovetop.  That means, yes– you guessed it– the grapes and oats will be finished at almost the exact same time!  (Perfection isn’t always this easy, folks.)  Stir the grapes, along with all of their juices, straight into your oats.  Add a little sweetener (if you want to), and dig in to this hearty bowl of oaty goodness.

*If you prefer rolled oats, or that’s all you have in your cabinet, go right ahead and use them!  Just make sure to follow the cooking directions on the rolled oats packaging instead of the steel cut directions in the recipe.

      Thanks! Me too! This is also a great way to use up some flavored balsamic if you have some 🙂
      Enjoy your weekend too!

    This is such a great idea Sarah! I love grapes but have never tried roasting them. I can only imagine how flavorful this must be. Normally I’m just sipping on the fermented ones..haha. Will pin this so I can try soon 🙂

    • champagne-tastes says:

      I like the fermented ones too!!! Haha. I love roasting grapes- especially once they get a little less firm and I don’t want to eat them straight 😋

  2. Wendy says:

    I have never had roasted fruit! I adore roasted veggies (roasting brings out such sweetness) and I grill fruit in the summer. My guess is that I am going to love roasted grapes. The fruit topped oatmeal breakfast is worth getting up early for!

  3. Marisa Franca @ All Our Way says:

    What a great idea! I know that roasting grapes and tomatoes concentrate the sugar in them so they have more flavor, but I never thought of adding grapes to my oatmeal. Like adding raisins that aren’t quite a raisins. I have some steel cut oats that are waiting for their grapes. 🙂

  4. Megan Marlowe says:

    I have never roasted grapes but I am SO excited to try this! You can’t go wrong with a combo of grapes and balsamic! I bet the grapes just melt into the oatmeal. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!

  5. Alicia Taylor says:

    Wow. This looks delicious. I also prefer steel cut oatmeal and buy it imported from Ireland to avoid GMO’s. I didn’t know you could roast grapes! You’ve expanded my horizons

  6. Sandhya Ramakrishnan says:

    I have never roasted grapes before and I am definitely going to try this. We have steel cut oatmeal almost everyday for breakfast and this would be such a lovely twist to the routine. Bookmarking the recipe 🙂

  7. Giselle Rochford says:

    OMG Why have I never roasted grapes before?!?! I always buy a tonne and can never figure out what to do with them all when I get tired of just eating them plain. Def giving this a try over the weekend 😍
