Get Your Oatmeal On: National Oatmeal Month

January is National Oatmeal Month. It makes sense, really, when you think about cold, grey mornings and getting ready for a new day. Starting it of with a bit of warm something to stick with you and keep you going until lunchtime is a wonderful start.

Still, I’m often bored by the prospect of a single bowl of oatmeal with a bit of cream, brown sugar and raisins. It’s good for a day or two, but then it loses its mojo, and it’s time to switch it up. Here are a few more ways you can get your oats and enjoy them too.

    Banana bread, a perennial favorite, gets a boost by adding rolled oats, which give it texture, a nutty flavor and loads of nutrients; blueberries, a super food bursting with antioxidants, bring sweet tang and moistness.
