January is National Oatmeal Month. Did you know more oatmeal is consumed in January than any other month of the year? Honestly, there is nothing quite as satisfying as a hot breakfast on a cold morning, so I can see why! I always keep oatmeal on hand in my pantry, and I use it in a variety of recipes, probably my favorite being the Baked Oatmeal pictured above. Here are a few more:
- Peanut Butter Granola Bars
- Homemade Granola
- Kelly’s Homemade Granola
- Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies
- Baked Oatmeal
Oatmeal will help meat hold its shape when you stir in about a half cup when you are making meatloaf or rolling out meatballs. You can also sprinkle in a handful of oatmeal to pancake or muffin batter to add in a dose of fiber (and great, nutty flavor!).
Oatmeal is said to lower cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease, so if one of your 2012 Goals is how to be healthy, there is definitely reason enough to investigate and celebrate the benefits of oatmeal this month.
