There is nothing better than hot oatmeal on a cool morning. Honestly, I eat it all year round no matter the temperature. It is delicious and filling and a great way to get protein in the morning. Mix up the recipe with different fruits and nuts. Apples and berries are great additions to this recipes. You can swap the walnuts for pecans which offer a sweeter taste. Or add in some pumpkin or sunflower seeds. Although banana and apple will usually make this dish sweet enough, you can add some honey or maple syrup to make it a bit more indulgent. Enjoy!
