So many uses for oatmeal

I love oatmeal in the morning. I have it in the winter several times a week. This summer I ate it cold frequently. I would put 1/2 cup oatmeal mixed with 1/4 c. milk and a 1/4 c. plain yogurt. Then I'd pick a favorite fruit and cut it up in it and add just a small amount of honey or brown sugar. I would do this the night before and in the morning it was ready to eat. I also use oatmeal for many main dish meals. It is great to thicken sloppy joes if they are a little runny. I use it with ground beef as a binder. I also add oatmeal to breads, muffins, and pancakes for a little texture and fiber.

French Oatmeal

I found this recipe years ago. It's our favorite way of having our Coaches Oats. BTW I discovered this while I am sitting at the computer munching on my banana with homemade yogurt and homemade muesli granola (oats!)I love oats too!Whether it is homemade granola or in cookies or even ground up as a flour in some breads. My Irish soda bread wouldn't be the same without it. French Oatmeal

I love Oatmeal Too

Glad I found this group. Looking for recipes with oatmeal. I love oatmeal but would like to use it in other ways than only as my breakfast.
My usuall breakfast is homemade muslie which I make with oatmeal, All Bran, sunflower seeds, almond slivers and any fresh fruit I might have, like apples, pears or peaches. If I don't have any fresh fruit I add cranberries or raisins. With milk or yogurt.
