HOW TO make awesome morning oats…

If you know me, I am big into my porridge! For me and the kids! You can shove anything in it. It is a powerhouse of protein, good carbs and important fat. Throw out those ready-made oatmeal packets that are full of sugar, salt and ingredients you do not understand and make your own! It will take 15-20 minutes.
