Did you know that January is National Oatmeal Month? This round-up today celebrates the wild oat. Every month we are amazed to learn about out-of-the-ordinary celebrations that align with our Bee Inspired mission.
Oats don’t depend on bees for pollination they are however absolutely yummy with honey, and an important ingredient in many of our products.
Our friend Joyce Wallace, RN and Health Coach has helped to create many of these recipes with oatmeal and oats. Cheers to you, to oats, to bees and to a happy and healthy New Year!
Our Favorite Recipes for National Oatmeal Month
I first published a Peanut Butter Ball recipe a couple years back, and lots of you wrote about how much you enjoyed the recipe.
This take includes flax seeds, a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid. Peanut butter and honey bind the flax seeds and oats together. These little balls provide long lasting energy as they serve as a perfect snack for busy students and outdoor adventurers!
Start your morning with this fabulous Power Porridge, made with cloves and cardamom.
I triple this recipe in a slow cooker for a few hours on low heat and it comes out great. Top it with homemade almond milk, fresh fruit, homemade granola, chopped nuts, and a drizzle of your favorite honey for the best breakfast ever. This is one of our favorites all National Oatmeal Month long!
Oat Bran Muffins might seem boring, but they need not be!
Change this recipe up with whatever fruit is in season. Add in chopped apples and cinnamon for a warm fall treat, or citrus zest and a drizzle of honey for a satisfying summery breakfast. These are very filling no matter what you add to the batter, so making them a little smaller is recommended.
Made with stone ground oats, berries, chopped nuts, and honey, our Simple Overnight Oats are filling and easy to make.
Simply combine all of the ingredients into a mason jar, and wake up the next morning to a grab-and-go breakfast! You can also warm this oatmeal up in a pot, if you’d like something cozy in the colder months.
Our Oatmeal Cookies are delightfully easy and yummy.
These cookies are just one more sweet way to celebrate National Oatmeal Month in your belly. We’ve packed these full of chopped dried fruit and other goodies, and they’ll go perfectly with a cup of tea. Make a big batch of these as they’ll go quickly!
A DIY Oatmeal Beauty Recipe
Treat yourself to a customizable, skin-softening milk, honey and oat face mask that you can mix up in your kitchen.
Your complexion will thank you. We like to swap out the dairy for organic oat milk you can make it yourself, and mix in warm tea or coffee for a dose of skin-tightening caffeine. You could also add in a spoonful of matcha powder to achieve the same results.
This Bee Well DIY mask also features this month’s favorite oatmeal ingredient!
It happens to also boast some of our other favorite ingredients including oils and pink clay. This treatment is perfect for the winter-time, when dry air can throw your skin into a tizzy. We personally notice when the weather shifts in any direction, just like that, so does our skin. This mask helps.
