Ingredients:

fresh berries
chopped strawberries
small scoop of almond butter

Directions:
Simply put on a kettle of water while getting ready in the morning.
Once the water is boiled, add the quick cook oats (I use Trader Joe's)
Let it sit for a minute

mix water and oatmeal in a bowl, and serve with fixings on the side so kids can feel involved and decide what they want to use.

This morning our oatmeal was made with apple slices, banana,

For an even quicker breakfast, give an individual packet of trail mix so they can mix it in at their own pace while you scramble to get ready in the morning. Instead of using honey or syrup, sometimes I may spray Vitamin B-12 spray onto the oatmeal. It makes a pretty bright red splash that my kid loves, and gives a little extra kick.

Personal Notes:
I love this recipe. Ari Raphael asks for oatmeal every morning he is cold. There's something special about being able to choose his own toppings and put everything together by himself. I like it, because it's quick, cheap, healthy, and I can eat the leftovers if Ari doesn't finish it.
