Not So Boring Oatmeal

Oatmeal can be sooo boring for breakfast....When I was a kid I used to think it was gross and how could it ever taste good. There are alot of prepackaged flavored oatmeals out there now and most are not as good for you as you would think. Alot of added sugars and such that just don't make for a healthy start to your day. I have played around with different ideas to make oatmeal a little more exciting in my house. Here is what I came up with....

you will need -
quick cooking oatmeal
agave nectar
unsweetened applesauce

Start out cooking the desired serving of oatmeal as directed on the box

In a bowl sprinkle a tsp of cinnamon

add in the applesauce and a tbsp of agave nectar

pour the oatmeal over the ingredients in your bowl and stir
sprinkle about a 1/4 a cup of raisins over the oatmeal

Its quick, easy and simply delicious! If you want to be a little more adventurous you can substitute the applesauce and raisins with banans, almonds and or dark chocolate morsels. There are so many ways to enjoy oatmeal that it never has to be boring. Enjoy!
