Oh-Mega Breakfast Oats

Weekday breakfast blitz! An easy fix is that store-bought cereal, but instead of turning to sugary, processed cereal, let’s feast our eyes on oats! Oatmeal – done the right way – is a great way to ensure your family is having a nutritious meal to start the day. But many people use too much brown sugar and other sweet toppings to create a sugary, carb-heavy breakfast. Well friends, this recipe is a life saver. Our  Oh-Mega Breakfast Oats amps up the nutritional value of your morning oats by adding chia seeds and pumpkin seeds to provide more Omega and protein action just when you need it most. This is a great base from which you can get creative and decorate your oatmeal as you like.
