Got some oats to use up? Learn what to make with oatmeal using ingredients you probably have on hand. Easy, simple recipes that will make you drool.
That container of oats has been sitting on your pantry shelf forever.
You bought it with the best of intentions. But somehow, that fancy Pinterest recipe just didn’t make itself.
The thing is, oatmeal is so cheap. It would be great to find recipes that are actually good and easy enough to throw together.
Well, you’re in luck!
There are a bunch of recipes out there that you can throw together in a flash.
A lot of these recipes are perfect for using up fruit that’s been left to rot. Or that lonely container of yogurt that got pushed to the back of the fridge.
Unbelievably (a little, let’s admit it) the best part is that these recipes use up scraps and cheap oatmeal…but they are still delicious! My kids always get excited when they come in the kitchen and see one of these foods cooling on the counter.
You’re definitely going to want to pin this one. (Because you’ll actually come back and make these recipes with simple ingredients!)

Love that you can use either bananas (those ones that turned brown overnight would be perfect) or applesauce in these Easy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Breakfast Squares. (I won’t tell if you’re chocolate chips aren’t vegan…no worries.)
