Today, October 29th, is officially National Oatmeal Day. Who makes these decisions and concludes which food we honor on which day is beyond me. I’m just happy to have a reason to celebrate! Oatmeal is arguably one of the most nutritious meals to have for breakfast, and these delightful gluten free oatmeal recipes showcase how oatmeal can be eaten at any time of the day. And for those of you who associate oatmeal with a bowl of mush in your mind – it’s time to change your tune. I will fully admit that I was once someone who gagged merely at the thought of oatmeal. But after trying my hand at these delicious recipes, I will never balk at oatmeal again.
From oatmeal cookies and muffins to overnight oatmeal recipes, this list has all of your oatmeal needs covered. Be sure to try out at least one of these recipes today, and get in the spirit of National Oatmeal Day!
Classic Oatmeal Recipes
Mix up your usual morning routine with these fun and flavorful recipes. The Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal is a personal favorite of mine. Who doesn’t love dessert for breakfast?
This is easily one of the most ingenious recipe ideas you’ll ever come across. Prepare your oatmeal the night before – it takes about 5 minutes – and then wake up and dig into a delicious meal! Try creating your own unique oatmeal flavors. Personally, I recommend the Banana Split Overnight Oats (pictured). It’s the perfect way to eat healthy and still satisfy your sweet tooth.
Oatmeal Cookies remind me of Sunday afternoons at my parents’ house. There is just something about a soft and chewy oatmeal cookie that brings to mind feelings of warmth and home. The Flourless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are exceptionally tasty – and I love not having to buy gluten free flour to bake with!
