Letâ€™s face it: plain oatmeal can get boring. Though itâ€™s loaded with soluble fiber that can reduce cholesterol and keep you full, basic oatmeal sometimes just doesnâ€™t cut it. So if youâ€™re looking for oatmeal that will really wake your taste buds, this is it.
This recipe only uses two simple ingredients that am almost certain are in your pantry; cinnamon and cocoa. This will give the oats a punch of flavor and make it much tastier. Sliced bananas make beautiful garnish. You can also try coconut flakes, almonds or whatever suits your fancy.
