Sharing is caring!

Give me a ­čÖî­čĆ╝ if you love a breakfast that cooks itself? I sure do! As the weekend was coming to an end that Monday feeling was coming over me. What to pack for breakfast for the week for Lincoln? What do I want? It is pretty cold here (Michigan) right now so something warm…easy…Oatmeal!

Better yet, oatmeal that cooks itself. This recipe is very easy, was fun to make with Lincoln, and will give you long-lasting carbohydrates, fiber, quality, fats, protein and anti-oxidants as well. Want the recipe? I know you do!

  • Add nuts, nut butters, extra berries, hemp hearts, seeds, or collagen/protein powder (especially if you want protein but you chose a milk/alternative that doesn't have any).

P.S. You can sub in any fruit! I just had frozen blueberries on hand and it worked well for this recipe to use some of them up.
