Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Bowl

Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast foods. Because I make it all year long I usually add whatever fruits and berries are in season. Not only is it a great energy booster but it’s also a healthy way to start your day. This is one of several oatmeal bowls I like to make. Come the fall, I like to add cinnamon, brown sugar and dates. I also prefer old fashioned rolled oats versus instant oats. They take a little longer to cook but it’s so worth the wait.

Since our brunch options have been slashed by way of the pandemic this seems to foot the bill whenever I feel like having something warm and hearty. Fresh fruits are best but frozen fruit is great because it won’t go bad and you’ll always have it handy in the freezer.
