The way I consume my oatmeal varies a lot. I love chewy, creamy overnight oats or a a cold and creamy smoothie made with oatmeal on hot summer mornings. When it’s freezing outside, a hot bowl of fluffy protein oats or a warm batch of oatmeal protein pancakes appeal to me most. However, if I’m being totally honest, I eat hot oats and protein pancakes year-round and smoothie ingredients often find their way into my blender in the middle of January. I’m clearly not too picky — I just love my oats!
If you happen to be like me, I hope today’s roundup of healthy oatmeal recipes gives you some new recipes to try when you’re looking for a way to incorporate oats into your morning meal!
