How have I never had real oatmeal before!?  It is SO good! Those crappy instant packets don't compare. 
I skipped the vanilla extract and just poured in a little vanilla almond milk and topped with all the goodies.  I will consider waking up early on weekdays so I can eat this daily.


I enjoyed this :) I used home-made blueberry jam along with almonds, sweetened goji berries and vanilla extract.
This is a great recipe if you're someone who can't stomach something too sweet in the morning. But if you do have a bit of a sweet tooth I recommend using 2 tbsp of jam or drizzling agave over your oats


Oh yay! I like it, too!


I hate oatmeal  >:(...but i know that's the best breakfast there is when you workout like i do. I gave this recipe a try and it's in fact very good ! :ladybug:
