Did you know that January is National Oatmeal Month? This hearty, delicious, and very healthy and filling food has a whole month dedicated to it! The great thing about oatmeal is that it doesn’t have to be boring and plain, even though the traditional way of adding milk and brown sugar is great on its own. You can add so many different flavors and toppings to create a one of a kind dish that’s perfect for you. So to celebrate National Oatmeal Month, we’ve rounded up some very creative and clever oatmeal recipes that put a spin on this classic dish!
