When it comes to making oatmeal, we’re aware of all the ways it can go wrong: too many lumps, sticky enough to glue your mouth shut, bland as can be, you name it. Because January is National Oatmeal Month, we here at Canyon Park Blog are dedicated to helping you have a good experience making oatmeal for breakfast. You’d be surprised how delicious it is when it’s prepared right! Sometime this month, try out one (or all) of the recipes below and see what we mean.
