Oatmeal is universally beloved because of its versatility and nutritious profile. Oatmeal can be sweet, savoury, crunchy, fudgy, and more! Much like how Meryl Streep is beloved by all, oatmeal is a household favourite across the globe.
Oatmeal can be enjoyed in so many ways- overnight, baked, blended, boiled, instant… The possibilities are endless.
Our favourite creators have shown us how they like to enjoy their oats so you can give it a go too!
Sometimes you just need to follow the age old adage: keep it simple, silly.
