Dreamy Blueberry Banana Oatmeal

Last week we woke up to a blanket of snow. It was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed everything about playing in it, until our fingers and toes got cold.

But before we headed outdoors that cold morning, we started with a hot breakfast to warm us up! I typically make a baked oatmeal but I didn’t want to wait 45 minutes. Little buddy and I were hungry, so we marched up stairs to whip up some dreamy blueberry banana oatmeal.

Yes, I took this picture in the snow. I couldn’t pass up the backdrop. There is nothing like natural scenery to enhance the picture right? :)

Enjoy!
