I just love to eat oatmeal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner…. or every day? not sure really! Oats are so good for you because it is an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. They also help lower cholesterol, reduce the chance of heart diseases.

The best part is you can create any flavor and topping according to your taste. To make the oats more creamy, use water instead of milk to avoid lumpy texture and add milk at the end.  I want to make this recipe more special by adding semolina, a durum wheat for a creamier consistency and a nutty flavor.
