Of course oatmeal was my first breakfast love. I’ve had other affairs with smoothies, dough boys, yogurt bowls, pancakes, overnight oats and lately, French toast. But when I do have a big bowl of stick-to-your-ribs hot whipped oatmeal, it reminds me why it’s the best breakfast around! Today’s bowl was whipped banana oatmeal made with […]

Mornin’ friends! After a few days of pumpkin in loaf form, it was time to have it in creamy oatmeal form again. This was the perfect bowl topped with banana (rather than putting it inside), homemade granola and almond butter. Super filling!

Pretty pottery! The bowl on the left I bought at a street vendor in Asheville, NC and the mug on the right is one of our Great Harvest mugs from a Fredericksburg potter.
