Oatmeal is the number one meal you can have for breakfast. Not only does it taste good, but it’s quick and easy to make, is very high in fiber, and it can help you lose weight.

Oatmeal is very versatile and can be enjoyed as a savory or sweet meal. As a bonus, you can make yummy granola energy bars to give you that extra boost whenever you need it.

Oatmeal variations (just add the following…)
Sweet: Cinnamon, applesauce, raisins, dried cranberries, pistachios, brown sugar, chopped walnuts, frozen berries, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, crushed pineapple, mandarin orange slices, shredded coconut, peanut butter, sliced banana, honey, Nutella.

Mix it all together
Form the bars by hand or using a pan
Stick them in the freezer until needed
