One thing I always have on hand is oatmeal- it’s quick, kid friendly, healthy and wildly versatile. Oatmeal can be found as white oats, steel-cut oats or rolled oats. I use oats in everything, including healthy clean eating pancakes.
Oats are also great for lowering cholesterol in the body, they are a wonderful source of fiber and help reduce the risk of heart diseases.
If you’re limiting yourself to only eating oats at breakfast, you are missing out! Contrary to what people think, oats are not meant for breakfast recipes alone; they are so versatile that they can be incorporated in meals for any time of the day. From sweet to savory dishes, to thicken soups, to make dough or stuff veggies, oats make an appearance in a large number of recipes.
Below is a list of 15 delicious oatmeal based recipes for any type of meal.
