Put down the packet of oatmeal because today, I’m showing you how to make a healthy (the HEALTHIEST!) bowl of oatmeal.

Oatmeal is a darling in the nutrition world, and for good reason – each 150 calorie serving provides 5 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and is a whole-grain food. It’s also cheap, readily available and almost everyone likes it.

So what takes a bowl of oatmeal to the HEALTHIEST bowl of oatmeal?

It’s pretty simple. Some antioxidant-rich fruit, some protein in the form of greek yogurt, some chopped nuts for a dose of healthy fats (and crunch!) and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup if you need something a little sweet.

This upgraded bowl of oatmeal comes together in minutes, but will leave you satisfied until lunchtime.

    My mom instilled a love of oatmeal in me. I tried “overnight oats” the other day and wasn’t sure how I felt since I still wanted to heat it up to eat it in the morning so not sure if it’s that much of a time saver? Love the addition of greek yogurt and nuts for crunch!

    Perfect breakfast on these frigid Minnesota mornings! I’ve been looking to switch up my boring sunbutter + jam toast, so thanks for the tasty idea!
