Making Oatmeal Fun

When I was younger I HATED oatmeal. But once I decided to get healthier I decided to incorporate it back into my diet. And eventually brown sugar and fruit got boring. So I came up with some exciting recipes that keep my oatmeal fresh throughout the week. And I used ingredients mostly found in my pantry/fridge.

Simply cook your oatmeal like you normal do, and include these fun toppings. Recipes are based off individual servings.
