Walnut and Brown Sugar Oatmeal

Get out of a boring oatmeal rut with this delightfully sweet and nutty variation. The candied walnuts add a nice chewiness and omega 3’s, while the dollop of greek yogurt lends creaminess and protein. Top this already fiber-rich bowl with a handful of bran flakes for crunchiness!

Hopefully you know how to make basic oatmeal! My favorite kind is Coach’s Oats. If that’s the kind you’re using, combine 1/3 cup dry oats with 1 cup water and microwave at 70% power for 4 minutes. Otherwise, follow package instructions.
