7 Healthy & Non-Boring Oatmeal Recipes to Try this Winter

January is National Oatmeal Month, dedicated to celebrating this beloved healthy breakfast cereal. Made from nutritious whole grain oats, oatmeal has long been recognized for its many health benefits — including reducing cholesterol levels, supporting gut health, and healthy weight management due to its dietary fiber content.  

The many ways to prepare oatmeal are endless too — going far beyond instant packets or bland recipes from your childhood.

Whether you need an energizing snack or breakfast “glow up,” we’ve got you covered.
