It’s National Oatmeal Day! So to celebrate, I have gathered 3 recipes — 2 oatmeal bowls and 1 cookie.

Berries and Cream Oatmeal

Are you looking for a lighter oatmeal recipe? Sometimes oatmeal recipes can tend to lean heavy on the buttery goodness side, while they lack in the lighter, healthier side of food.

A lighter oatmeal with a few servings of sweet fruit is likely to help you to feel a lot more energized after eating the carbs in the oatmeal, and your blood sugar won’t spike as heavily causing you to feel tired suddenly in the middle of the day. If you want something healthy and easy to digest, then you can take a look at this recipe for berries and cream oatmeal.

Plum Oatmeal Pudding

Most breakfasts can be paired with some fruit. What kinds of fruit would you choose?

A lot of recipes will list apples, raisins, and other fruits as a good fruit to put with oatmeal, but have you ever considered using plums? Plums are delicious and very nutritious fruit. They have a sweet flavor that is very unique, and interesting. If you’ve been looking for a new fruit to try with your breakfast cereal, then try this recipe for plum oatmeal pudding.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I used to make oatmeal cookies for Christmas — along with decorated sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies — for my family during the Christmas Holidays. These cookies have a pop of pumpkin spice flavoring.

I think my family would have enjoyed these.
