Then I had a baby. Suddenly, adding multiple things into a bowl seems complex - after all, she's usually in one arm, trying to grab everything from my free hand, or she's [not so] patiently waiting for her own bottle breakfast. So we're back to cold cereal? Or those oatmeal packets? Not so!
Filled with fiber and protein, [re]heat up a slice of this baked oatmeal, and you'll be set for the rest of your morning. So long cold cereal and packets!
