Oatmeal might be my favorite breakfast food, but it is too hot to even think about starting the day with a steaming bowl of cereal. Luckily, I’ve discovered museli! Your options are limitless, but here is the bowl I made this morning. The recipe is for the image below, but I’ve listed some other options below the recipe to give you an idea of the many ways you can flavor your morning. Enjoy! -Amanda
