In the morning I almost always eat cereal. I have always done that as a kid and it has stuck. However, in the summer I do like hot oatmeal because its too warm, but when I came across this recipe I was so excited. Oats are so good for you and these recipes are SO yummy.
The cool thing about these oats is you prepare them overnight, while you sleep. It is very quick and when you wake up your breakfast is ready to eat... even ready to grab on-the-go.
