Non-Fat Greek Yogurt with Roasted Oatmeal “Streusel”
There are those of us who try to eat oatmeal everyday for its heart-healthy benefits. And truthfully, that oatmeal routine can get quite boring. But here, old dull oatmeal becomes an inviting way to begin an awesome day. The idea for this “streusel” comes from energy-packed breakfast bars. It’s kind of like a deconstructed breakfast bar on top of yogurt. And roasted oatmeal is a nice change from the “wet” version.
By the way, do you think having to eat bacon everyday could get boring too? Hmmm…
Good morning! Please join me for breakfast. How do you take your coffee?
