National Oatmeal Monday

AND MAN OH MAN DO I HAVE A WAY OF CELEBRATING FOR YOU!!

Baked Apple Stuffed with Cinnamon Date Pecan Oatmeal

First off, have you ever baked an apple??? It’s amazingness. It may indeed seem to take forever, but it is sooo worth the wait. So why not stuff it with one of the natural wonder foods of the world. 

This just proves even further the ridiculous versatility that oatmeal has! You can have it for breakfast, as a thickener, to make cookies… seriously, the possibilities are ENDLESS. And if that doesn’t butter your biscuits, here are 21 other recipes for you to surrender yourself to!

National Oatmeal Month

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of oatmeal. I still wake up every morning excited to have some oatmeal for breakfast… especially now that its cold outside. Last year for National Oatmeal Month, I talked all about:

  • Carrot Cake oatmeal
  • Banana Bread oatmeal
  • Pear Vanilla oatmeal
  • Apple Pie oatmeal
  • Peanut Butter Honey oatmeal
  • Sweet Potato Pie oatmeal  

But then of course I have to celebrate national oatmeal day on October 29th with some:

  • Brown Sugar Roasted Fig oatmeal
  • Oatmeal Brulee
  • Coconut Cookie Dough oatmeal
  • Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Bites
  • Oatmeal Raisin Sandwich Cookies

So the question is what am I gonna share with you now???

Well first off. I have become slightly in love with this pre-made oatmeal. Plus, Bob Harper (from Biggest loser- and fellow vegan) endorses it, so what’s not to love?

But don’t you dare think I’m gonna just cop out there…

I know, I know, I feel your pain. I don’t know what recipe to celebrate with first either!! I  mean, January is all about be healthy, and all these recipes are pretty good for you. I guess I should start with some oatmeal cookies.


National Oatmeal Day!!!

OH HAPPY DAY. Seriously, I love love love love love oatmeal. And I know this is old news, but it is literally the only reason I get up in the morning. Unfortunately, unlike January, this is only National Oatmeal Day and not National Oatmeal Month. BUT- I’ll take all the oatmeal celebratin’ I can get. So let’s get cookin’

Brown Sugar Roasted Fig Oatmeal

Oatmeal Brulee

P.S. I love love love that they’re in jars.

Coconut Cookie Dough Oatmeal

And I couldn’t resist…

So here are some cookies too!

Strawberry Banana Bites

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sandwiches

Don’t you just love the versatility of oatmeal?! And apparently, it’s also great to thicken up shakes in a less fattening away. And love anything that will allow me to have more while eating less fat. Anything. 

National Breakfast Month!

I LOVE BREAKFAST, LIKE A LOT. MY EXCITEMENT TO HAVE BREAKFAST LITERALLY PROPELS ME OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING. 

It’s the best meal of the day. Hence me creating a Pinterest Board entitled - Best Meal: Breakfast. Typically, I have oatmeal (YUM) and a smoothie fo breakfast every morning, in case you are wondering. But seriously, the possibilities are endless. Like:

Oreo Pancakes

Banana Bread Oatmeal

Molten Lava French Toast

Peanut Butter & Banana Breakfast Polenta

So basically, I like my breakfast to be dessert, but who ever complain about having dessert first thing in the morning? No one. My point exactly. 

Oh and don’t forget, you can eat breakfast anytime of the day. I makes an excellent lunch or dinner. 

National Blueberry Month

I know this is going to be the most pathetic thing you’ve heard all month, but seriously I super pumped to be celebrating this and what exactly is my plan for celebrating (aka probably aren’t) this??

 

YEP!! McDONALD’S BLUBERRY BANANA NUT OATMEAL!!!

Seriously, I love bananas, nut, blueberries, and oatmeal, so what’s not to love about this? And it’s cheap as dirt, actually, probably cheaper. And if this fails me, which it won’t, I’ll just have to makes some blueberry muffins….

I used to be really obsessed with muffins, shocker, I know. 

Oatmeal
Did I ever tell you how much I love oatmeal? I know I have (several times) but I’m gonna do it again… I feel like my day is not complete without having a huge bowl of awesomeness in the morning. I’m actually surprised I have dedicated an entire pinterest board to it, althought it is very common on my best meal: breakfast board. Recently, I started adding flax meal to my typical cinnamon, maple, banana combo and it is ridiculous!!! So much more fulfilling, and honestly I didn’t think that was possible. Yes, I just go even more obsessed with oatmeal, so I’ll take 7 of those spoons please.

National Oatmeal Month

What better way to start off a cold January morning. That’s right, it was a rhetorical question because there is no better way to start off your morning, and that sentence end with a period. Plus we’re talking endless amounts of variety and creativity if you start with just the plain boring basic oatmeal. Just think of all the topping you can add! It’s kind of like being at a frozen yogurt bar.. but with OATMEAL!

So let’s show some of the amazing recipes that could be made (all via Pinterest, of course):

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Banana Bread Oatmeal

Pear Vanilla Oatmeal

Apple Pie Oatmeal

Peanut Butter Honey Oatmeal

Sweet Potato Pie Oatmeal

Seriously, I could go on, and on, and on, and by now, you know better than to doubt me.

And yes, I do eat oatmeal every. single. morning. And yes, it is the only reason I see fit to get up in the mornings. Well, that and having to pee (aren’t you glad I shared?).

National Microwave Oven Day

Brownie in a Mug

For that reason alone I could not live without a microwave. And just think of the rivalry between the oven and the microwave. The microwave be like, “Anything you can cook, I can cook faster! I can cook anything faster than you!” Just think, most houses now a days have built in microwaves, so take that toaster, coffee machine, and toaster oven! You guys have yet to receive VIP status like that. 

But seriously I also couldn’t live without Oatmeal, Popcorn, Microwavable Playdough, and Cake in a Mug.  I have a need for speed.
