Oatmeal is a comforting, nutritious pantry staple that serves as the perfect base for so many meals. Traditionally thought of as a breakfast item, we’ve got lunch inspiration, snack recipes, and even oatmeal-based desserts.
January is National Oatmeal Month – let’s celebrate with a few delicious FLIK-approved recipes that star oatmeal!
For Something Sweet
Skip the sugar or maple syrup on your oatmeal and top it with fresh fruit. Berries and stone fruit are delicious natural sweeteners that enhance your daily oatmeal routine.
