OATrageous Oatmeals by Kathy Hester

Oatmeal is a delicious and healthy ingredient to add to many recipes. It tastes great in Desserts, Granola, Smoothies, Cookies, just to name a few!  Recently, I entered a Cookbook Giveaway from the "Foodie Extravaganza" Group on Laurens blog called From Gate to Plate.
I'm so excited that I won this book!  There are so many wonderful recipes that include oatmeal and the photos are so pretty!  Some of the recipes that I'm anxious to try include Mini-Raspberry Cakes, Peanut Butter Pie Oatmeal and Carrot Cake Smoothie.  If you love using Oatmeal in your recipes, this is the perfect Cookbook!

More about the book:
OATrageous Oatmeals is a Simply Incredible Collection of Amazing Oatmeal Recipes

Say goodbye to boring oats and bland mix-ins because bestselling author Kathy Hester shows you delicious and exciting new takes on everyone's favorite health food with Banana Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes, Hummingbird Cake Oatmeal, Chai-Spiced Oat Shakes and Blackberry Mojito Overnight Refrigerator Oats. And she doesn't stop there. Savory recipes like Mushroom Sun-Dried Tomato Steel-Cut Oat Risotto, Oats-bury Steaks, Not-from-a-Box Mac and Oat Chez—even a healthy vegan sausage crumble made from steel-cut oats and spices—will wow oatmeal fans with new and nutritious dishes to try.

More about the author:

Kathy Hester lives in Durham, NC with her two cats who would rather not live together, a cute dog with a belly rub addiction, her very own picky eater, a kitchen garden, and more slow cookers than one person should own.  She writes, is the vegan blogger for Key Ingredient ( and writes for various publications such as Chickpea Magazine. She teaches vegan cooking classes, has put together a social media class for writers and has more classes in the works.
