Top 10: Unique Oatmeal Recipes

Today I’m excited to share with you ten unique oatmeal recipes that you are going to want to try this Fall. Who knew there were so many ways to make your morning bowl of oatmeal? From crockpot oats to baked oats, there is an oatmeal recipe for everyone.

I’m trying to get more organized when it comes to breakfast. Instead of waking up and thinking , “what should I make for breakfast this morning” ideally I would like to have a plan the night before.  I lived with a family in Australia during college while I studied abroad and they had a system down where they had a weekly breakfast plan and they knew what to expect each day. I love that idea. I’m still playing around with my exact outline but so far I am thinking:

Weekly Breakfast Menu

I never follow an outline perfectly, that seems incredibly stressful to me, but I plan to use this for inspiration and structure.
