15 Delicious Healthy Recipes Using Oats

Saturday shindigs, yo!

That was really lame! How are you all today? As mentioned last Saturday, Amanda and I are starting this new weekly feature- Sweet & Savory Saturdays! As mentioned in last week’s post, we’ll be sharing 15 delicious recipes around a certain theme (this week- It’s OATS!) and at the end, we’d love for you to linkup up to TWO recipes which feature oats! Next week, we’ll be sharing the top three most clicked recipes, and also be sharing all link ups across social media (Twitter, Pinterest etc)

Can we talk oats for one second? For the longest of times, I would only associate oats with oatmeal (cereal) and granola bars. Now, don’t get me wrong here- I love oats in these forms but the longer I blogged, the more I loved using it in other ways- Savory, bread, condensed into a flour- The options were endless! 

Before we forget, next week’s theme will be creative recipes using ripe bananas!


Anyway, let’s jump into 15 delicious and unique recipes featuring our favorite grain- OATS! Seriously, you’ll be drooling at some of the offerings here and the creativity- Woo!

  1. I think this link-up is a pretty cool idea. I hope many people contribute for a great list of recipes. I have oats in different forms almost every day. But as much as I rack my brain I can’t come up with a savory recipe I tried. Maybe I find some inspiration here 🙂

  2. I’m totally enjoying this as I eat some baked oatmeal! I go through so many canisters of them, but I am always happy with more options of what to do with them! I’ve been eyeing those chunky monkey pancakes for too long! Time for me to make them.

  3. Seriously LOVE this new series!!! I usually take weekends off but I am gonna have to make an exception for this series that you and Amanda are doing! Fantastic!
    The most unique way I’ve eaten oats is in a “Skillet Baked Oatmeal Risotto” – it was savory and had ‘shrooms in it – I probably should have shared that one but I already attached the adapted beetified chocolate cake from POY. Happy Saturday Arman!

  4. So many recipes with so many feels! I was ECSTATIC to see Ambitious Kitchen, Running with Spoons and Running to the Kitchen because I love their blogs too! I cannot wait to try these recipes out because they look absolutely amazing. Great picks this week!

  5. Whooooa did I fall off the face of the earth last weekend? Totally did not know what was going on here. But no fear, I’ve now caught myself up with your post from last weekend. This is awesome! What a fun and generous link up! Oh you two. Always thinking of us hungry folk.

  6. We’ve been eating oats like they’re going out of style lately. Wait. Are they going out of style? You live in LA now. Tell me oats are still in style! 🙂 Thanks for the link, mate. Hope your week is going well!
