5 Best Oatmeal-Based Recipes

Oatmeal is a wonderful food – low in fat, high in fibres, and helps lower cholesterol level. Eating it plain can be a bit boring, but thankfully oatmeal is also one of the most versatile food products. There are a lot of ways to cook and modify oatmeal – here are five of my favourite recipes that you could try.

Well, have no fear because I have a tasty and chewy cookie recipe that could spice up your oatmeal life.(PS: this recipe has no affiliation with the musical duo ‘Hall and Oates’, it’s just a friendly pun)
