"Oatmeal Week" (and Month) is over... at least till next year!

I love doing my ‘Week of’ feature (even though I sometimes get busy and post a recipe {or two} a day {or two} late!!

I loved all of the oatmeal recipes I shared last week in honor of National Oatmeal Month. The only bad part is that when I decided I wanted to do oatmeal for January’s ‘Week of’ feature I had so many oatmeal recipes I wanted to try and unfortunately I never got around to making all of them. So I guess you will be seeing more oatmeal recipes in the months to come because I am having an unnatural desire for oatmeal raisin cookies and oatmeal cream pies that I know won’t go away until I make some!

 But in case you missed any of the oatmeal recipes I featured this week here is a recap (perfect since today is the last day of January and the last day of National Oatmeal Month)!

OMG! These meatballs were so moist and flavorful! We enjoyed them by themselves as well as on meatball subs! They would also be wonderful served over a big bowl of pasta!

Most people eat a bowl of oatmeal for a nice filling breakfast. But this flavorful, healthy oatmeal shake is quick and convent when you need to eat oatmeal on the run!

I couldn’t do oatmeal week without featuring an oatmeal cookie! And while I mentioned earlier that I have been craving oatmeal raisin cookies and oatmeal cream pies this No Bake Oatmeal Cookie is a childhood favorite and is SUPER easy. It totally tamed my oatmeal cookie craving (at least for now)!

Oatmeal makes breakfast fun because of all the endless oatmeal topping and mix-in possibilities. My current fav is Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal!

And my last oatmeal recipe of the week was this Oatmeal Crusted Chicken. Using oatmeal to bread chicken is a unique and budget friendly (not to mention healthy AND tasty) alternative to bread crumbs!

  1. That's how I'm feeling about my red velvet week - so many recipes to try and only so many days in a week!! All of these look great - oatmeal is such a versatile ingredient!
