As part of the No Cold Cereal Challenge last week, I made this oatmeal…inspired by one of those instant packet oatmeals that I’ve seen at the store.
But I guarantee this tastes better!!!
I still have some pecans leftover from the holidays…and my *free* maple syrup from Amazon (using Amazon credit from Swagbucks)…and some marked down oats (paired with a coupon of course!)…using inexpensive ingredients with some pricier ones, like pecans, still keeps the overall cost down!
Simple, nutritious and hearty!!!
