How To Eat Your Oats Every Day
Did you know you can make things like muffins, pancakes and breakfast cakes with only oats, no flour? Yes, it is possible and it’s delicious! There are many benefits to eating oats everyday – they’re nutritious, support your digestive and heart health and can prevent chronic disease.
Oats are also versatile and quite tasty. They’re good for you whether you’re a kid who needs to poop more often or a grown up who needs to lower that cholesterol. But you do not need to make a warm bowl of oatmeal everyday to get your oatmeal needs covered for the week.
If the thought of stirring oatmeal every morning is preventing you from eating your daily dose of oats, you need to try these easy oatmeal recipes. Your kids will love them as well, I promise.
Some of these recipes use honey – if you’re making these for a child under 1 year old, use maple syrup instead as children under one shouldn’t eat honey.

Meal Prep For kids
For some recipes, like the overnight oats, you’ll need to make bigger batch if you want to make them ahead. They do store well for 2-3 days in the fridge, but I wouldn’t let them sit longer than that. Store all of the other oat recipes in the fridge.
