Each year, the Whole Grains Council celebrates one grain or another in the world's grain supply, and January is Oatmeal Month.
Another nugget of information that you may or may not know, we buy more oats in January than at any other time of year. It makes sense to me. When the weather gets colder, I crave a warm and hearty breakfast. Hot Oatmeal is very satisfying and is certainly not difficult to make. I always make enough for my husband and me, and if there are any leftovers, I store them in a mason jar to enjoy the following day.
My friend Joyce Wallace recently shared this recipe with me after I enjoyed these oats at her home. Joyce is gluten-free. She encourages you and me to be gluten-free, also. Not all oats are automatically gluten-free; it depends on where the oats are processed. Oats are, by their nature, gluten-free. Read the label for the GF Certification. We use Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Oats.
