Is oatmeal a healthy breakfast?

This oatmeal bowl is a heart-healthy breakfast and a great way to start the morning. Although the carbs are high in this oatmeal bowl recipe, it’s loaded with whole grains and fruit with over 11 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein. This is a great way to get all your fruit into one meal and I love eating a rainbow of colors which has a variety of vitamins and minerals.

How do you sweeten oatmeal naturally?

I don’t add sugar to my oats. Instead, I use ripe mashed banana to naturally sweeten them, which make the oats sweet enough for me. Feel free to drizzle some honey or maple over the oatmeal if you like them sweeter.

Oatmeal Bowl Toppings:

I  love topping my oatmeal breakfast bowl with fresh fruit, almonds, chia seeds, and peanut butter that I warm in the microwave. The toppings are versatile, though. Below are more topping ideas, but let me know in the comments below if you come with others!

Fruit: Banana, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, figs
Dried Fruit: Dried cranberries, prunes, dates
Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios
