Oatmeal is one of the best breakfast foods, really. It gives you a great start to your day while keeping you full for everything you need to do. But the pre-packaged oatmeal, flavored with combos like maple and brown sugar, can get boring and repetitive. That's why we have created a list of all our favorite oatmeal recipes. From baked oatmeal to overnight oats, we've got you covered.
And, here are some of the most commonly asked questions about making oatmeal:
How long can cooked oatmeal last?
If it is stored in an airtight container in the fridge, cooked oatmeal can be kept for 4-6 days. Reheat it with a bit of milk or water to restore moisture.
Do you eat overnight oats hot or cold?
Because they are soaked overnight, overnight oats do not need to be eaten hot. The soaking means they do not need hot water to cook. However, if you don't like your oatmeal cold there is no reason you can't warm up your overnight oats in the morning.
Is it better to make oatmeal with milk or water?
We think water is best for making oatmeal. Using milk can make the oatmeal thick and sticky. Use water, then add milk or cream later, to taste.
