Without a doubt oatmeal is a quick and filling food with a pretty good nutritional profile, but good heavens it can get boring prepared the same way over and over, day in, day out. The good news is that since it’s such a bland food, it can act as a blank canvas for pretty much any ingredients that you want to mix it with. And oats aren’t just for breakfast, they make for hearty lunches and dinners too.
If you’re not a culinary whiz, then concocting your own recipes can be a little hit or miss, so I’ve tracked down some easy, delicious recipes for you.
You can use quick cook oatmeal in some of these recipes, but rolled oats are the healthier option. All recipes serve 1 unless noted otherwise.
