Hearty and Yummy, Heart Healthy Oatmeal With Berries PrintFriendly

There’s nothing quite like a warm bowl of homemade oatmeal in the morning. It fills you up for hours. I’ve added a flavorful step of toasting the oats first before cooking in boiling water. In addition, I’m adding creamy vanilla soy milk, vanilla, cinnamon and fiber rich berries to create a wonderful flavor. Made this way, one serving has 8 grams of fiber! Try these additions or get creative with your own. What a great way to be start off your day healthy!
