January is National Oatmeal Month and for some reason, more oats are bought in January than in any other month of the year. Maybe it has to do with New Year’s resolutions and healthy eating (oats have many health benefits including lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels and boosting your immune system). So, consider jumping on this trend with this cozy recipe.
