The dietitian responsible for this recipe is in love with oatmeal. And so are we.

This recipe is great for those who don’t have time to prepare breakfast in the morning. All you need to do is cut off a slab, spread on 1-2 tbsp. natural almond butter, grab a small banana, and BAM! You’re out the door.
