Banana Brown Sugar Oatmeal

A good way to start the day is with a "healthy" breakfast!

Even better, is to have a heart-healthy breakfast with whole grains.  Eating grains, such as oatmeal, provides you with a good serving of fiber and is known to lower cholesterol.  

Oatmeal is hearty and keeps you filling full which makes it a perfect choice as a breakfast item. tastes good!

Whole grains are a powerhouse ingredient that you should try to incorporate into your diet.  I've taken to eating mostly whole grains...but still slip and have some white flour breads every once in a while!  Sorry, can't be helped! 

Everyone loves a warm breakfast and oatmeal is perfect for adults and is also kid friendly.  This recipe is a simple way to get a hot breakfast on the table fast.  Jazz it up with some fruit and brown sugar and you have a tasty dish!  It's so wholesome and yummy!

Enjoy your breakfast!
