50 AMAZING Oatmeal Recipes on FamilyFreshCooking.com

Seems like we all love oatmeal. Whenever I post an oatmeal recipe you guys go kinda wild. Oats are a simple, comforting ingredient that you can dress up or down depending on your mood. You can make a big batch to last days or a single serving. Versatile.

I love old fashioned rolled oats, steel cut, Irish oats, Scottish oats ~ just not that quick cook instant kind. Have fun with this recipe round-up, hopefully you will get 50 new ideas for oatmeal!

Feel free to link up your favorite oatmeal recipes at the bottom of this post too! We can never have enough great ideas!

This here is a recipe I developed for Attune Foods ~ it’s called Pumpkin Breakfast Bake with Streusel Topping.

Crack into that crispy streusel topping to find creamy, pumpkiny steel cut oats.

I’ve bookmarked this for future reference! I rarely make oatmeal (my kids prefer their oats soaked in buttermilk, mixed with fruit or vegetable, and baked into a muffin) but I sure love it and hope that one day they will appreciate how comforting a warm bowl can be on a winter’s morning.



23 Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies January 18, 2013 at 11:23 am

Thank you for this list! I am in dire need of healthy, filling breakfast ideas.

32 Nadia@Loveliveandgarden January 18, 2013 at 10:05 pm

Baked oatmeal sounds soooo yummy. I notice the method of preparation for saffron is missing. I just wrote a post on how to prepare saffron if anyone is interested.


33 Marla January 19, 2013 at 2:51 am

Thanks so much Nadia!! Please share a link with us for the saffron preparation….


34 Nadia@Loveliveandgarden January 20, 2013 at 10:40 pm

Hi Marla! A little bit of saffron goes a long way if prepared correctly. Check out this tutorial: http://loveliveandgarden.com/the-saffron-side-of-the-sun/

Hi Nadia, thanks so much for the helpful link!!
