January is National Oatmeal Month

January is National Oatmeal Month! Here's what you should be cooking.

To some, oatmeal can seem like the pinnacle of boring dishes. And granted, the way most people make it, this is probably true. But being that we’re Loveless and boring food isn’t in our repertoire, we’ve decided to prove that oatmeal is the best ingredient to cook with this month. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite oatmeal recipes.

Loveless-ite, Janet, submitted these for the staff cookie contest with a heaping scoop of pumpkin spice ice cream smushed in the middle. And we have to say, we’ve never tasted anything so utterly brilliant. They are sweet, simple and rather impressive when serving your family and friends with a sweet tooth!

We’re just having a ball celebrating National Oatmeal Month this January.  To keep the fun going, our pastry chef, Alisa Huntsman, made up a special Oatmeal Raisin Pie.  Similar to a Pecan Pie in the ingredients and consistency, this recipe has a sweet, hearty flavor that makes it a perfect pie for the winter.










We'll give you a reason to love oatmeal cookies- add pumpkin and chocolate chips!Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies


We adapted a flavorful oatmeal cookie recipe from our Dessert Cookbook and instead of adding dried fruit, tossed in a heaping handful of chocolate chips and a heavy dollop of pumpkin puree. The result is a moist cookie that’s not too sweet and provides the perfect balance of fall flavors and crave-worthy morsels of chocolate.
