Perfect oats

Its official, I’m obsessed with oats. Not only yummy but it’s nutritious and quick to make as well.  I almost always have oats for breakfast; unfortunately not everyone else around me is thrilled to have it every single day and it can become boring to always eat the same thing. So, I try out different ways to make sure everyone enjoy this healthy breakfast dish as much as I do.
