Make It Your Own Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl

There are so many ways to change up your oatmeal. The trick is keeping your favorite toppings on hand and tweaking it every day so it doesn’t get boring. We find that the fruits provide enough sweetness, but if you feel you need a little honey you can use 1 teaspoon in place of the dried fruit. Oatmeal bowls make great anytime snacks too!
