With all this sweetener talk, I thought I’d take my hand at making my own oatmeal. Not that I haven’t made my own oatmeal before but normaly, I rely on a pre-made packages that are chock full of artificial sweeteners like ones I use in Apple Pie Oatmeal.
Unfortunately I couldn’t get the toddler to give it a try. I think he’s entering the stage of food familiarity where he only eat what he knows. Who knows? I think he’ll come around. It was GOOD and oh so FILLING!
- ½ cup (40g) of quick oats
- 4 oz boiling water
- ¼ cup non-fat yogurt
- 1 tbsp honey
- ½ tsp raspberry or strawberry extract
- 4-5 strawberries cut in small pieces
- Handful of blueberries
Let the quick oats sit in the boiling water while you prepare everything else (about 3-4 minutes).
Mix the yogurt, honey and extract together. Add in the berries and cooked oatmeal.
