7 Oatmeal Recipes to Use Up Leftover Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal

If you have kids, you'll have leftover oatmeal. It never fails, my youngest will ask for seconds and then wander off before they're done. Luckily enough, I have plenty of oatmeal recipes that can put that leftover oatmeal to good use.

Any oatmeal recipes that use oats soaked in milk for 10-15 minutes can use leftover oatmeal instead. That means my personal favorite, breakfast cookies!

Try our seven ways to use leftover oatmeal in these delicious oatmeal recipes.

1. Oatmeal Spice Muffins: Just sub in your cooked oats for the oats and milk in this tasty oatmeal muffins recipe. Or try these Banana Oatmeal Muffins instead.

2. Leftover Oatmeal Bread: Oatmeal bread, oatmeal cookies and even fried leftover oatmeal are popular treats over at New Life on a Homestead.

3. Coconut Baked Oatmeal: This one from The Coconut Mama sounds like a fantastic treat. Coconut, leftover oatmeal, cream and some unique flavoring. Almond extract, vanilla and a splash of balsamic vinegar are in this delicious-sounding coconut bar. Or you can make her Creamy Coconut Oatmeal by subbing in your cooked oatmeal for the oats and liquids.

You can also try baked oatmeal in Apple PieCinnamon Raisin or Pumpkin Pie flavors.
