This is one way to get your day started on the right foot; sending you out into the world with the right energy levels and a balanced sugar level (so you don’t crash at 11am and stay happy till lunch).

The thing I love most about this recipe is how easy it is to unleash your creative self by adding the different dried fruit, fresh fruit, seeds or nuts.  If you add, for example, dried peach, cook it with the oatmeal. If you add a banana, cook it only for the last 2 minutes. Use chopped walnuts, almonds or sunflower seeds to top the meal. Yum!
