Day 26 : { Apple Pie Oatmeal}

Want something to warm you up on a cold morning with a cup of coffee? Look no further.

I made this today and it was great. The only substitutions I made were, I didn’t have chia seeds so I just added less milk also I didn’t have almond milk so I just used skim milk.

I’ve been meaning to find a good oatmeal recipe, I want to get into the habit of making breakfast every morning instead of just on weekends.

My fear was that it was going to be too sweet, but it was perfect.

This oatmeal is flawless behold it’s beauty…
