Friday Foodie: Banana Nut Oatmeal

banana nut oatmeal

The weather outside is frightful! The wind is gusting up to 60 miles an hour today, a high of 27 and wind chill of 4 along with snow flurries, makes me want to stay inside with something warm and cozy to eat! Oatmeal, as a child, meant plain ole oatmeal with lots of brown sugar piled on top, but this healthier version takes out the brown sugar and adds some healthy ingredients to the mix. I think you’ll like this one for sure! (oh, and please excuse the chipped bowl.)
