It’s all about round-up posts this week!
I really like to review old posts in order to see what I’ve written over the last 4 years. Actually it’s more like 4 and a half years now!
Although I really don’t create and share recipes anymore, it’s still important for me to bring my favorite recipes to life for those of you who missed them the first time around!
I decided to put together this round-up of 6 healthy recipes using oatmeal which contains recipes I have shared over the years here on the blog.
We aren’t just talking bowls of oatmeal today either! We are talking cookies and bites too which will provide you with recipes for excellent nutrition any time of the day.
Oatmeal is such a versatile ingredient. It can really be considered a blank canvas, used to create a nutritional powerhouse of a meal or snack. Adding fruits, chia seeds, nuts and/or nut butter and a protein source such as eggs, greek yogurt or protein powder combines to create the perfect post-run or anytime meal.
The combination of complex carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats not only taste great but also assists in repairing your muscles and replenishing your glycogen stores!
Keep in mind that although it is summer, you can enjoy your morning bowl of oatmeal served cold and I don’t even mean making overnight oats either! I always cook a few plain servings of oatmeal in advance for the week and store them in the refrigerator. In the winter I heat the cooked oatmeal but in the summer, I often eat my cooked oatmeal cold. I just mix in fruit and peanut butter (or whatever else) and enjoy it served cold. It’s so good this way, especially after a hot run!
Blueberry Pie Protein Oatmeal – I make this oatmeal quite often! It’s super simple and really tasty too. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in this easy recipe. I love this oatmeal served hot or cold!
Unbaked Baked Oatmeal – I love this oatmeal recipe since it involves mandarin oranges which aren’t always available all year. Once you see them in stores, get them to use in this oatmeal!
You will love it.
Autumn Oatmeal – This oatmeal is not just for the fall season! Apples are available all year long so make this easy recipe whenever you feel like warm cinnamon apples in your bowl. It’s really delicious.
Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies – Okay so these oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies are not only healthy but absolutely delicious.
I still remember how shocked I was when I created this healthy cookie recipe so perfectly on the first try.
Peanut Butter & Banana Protein Bites – Who doesn’t love a protein bite?
Bonus Recipe!! Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Protein Bites.
Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies – I LOVE these cookies.
In fact, I stored these banana chocolate chip cookies in the freezer and enjoy them equally as well still slightly frozen.

I definitely go through phases with oatmeal. I don’t eat it for breakfast very often but sometimes I will toss it in my smoothies to make them a little thicker. I love baking with it and will need to try some of your snack and dessert recipes!

I’ve been mixing oats with chia seeds and protein powder, drowning it all in almond milk and letting it sit overnight and then over the next few days I scoop a bit out, top it with chocolate chips and heat it up in the microwave!

I LOVE rolled oats, and I really love mixing in honey, peanut butter, nuts, dried fruit, bananas, and chocolate chips. 😀 Toppings are so good, and oatmeal is the perfect vehicle for all the toppings. 🙂

Old fashioned oats are my jam! Favorite mix in is PB. I grind up massive amounts of oatmeal and use it in place of flour in basically everything ! That blueberry oatmeal looks amazing

Favorite mix ins, definitely banana and nut butter and sometimes pumpkin puree
Favorite oats are the old fashioned rolled oats from Trader Joes
Favorite way to bake with oats is probably grinding it into flour ’cause it gives such a great and light texture to baked goods
Favorite way to eat my oatmeal lately is overnight oats in a jar because it is HOT here in NYC 🙂

I love a good oatmeal cookie.
My favorite mix in’s are bananas (so predictable) and all the berries.

Random, but I have a ton of steel cut oats that aren’t instant. I like to buy the instant kind for quick breakfasts. Do you think that steel cut oats would work for baked goods?
