Oatmeal is one of the most simple and also most filling breakfast options out there. With a natural sweet tooth, oatmeal has saved me more than once from eating something that would have been not even half as good for me. Most people think oatmeal is boring, and it might be if all you do is buy pre-packaged flavored packets and heat it in the microwave. Being a chef de cuisine when it comes to oatmeal, I definitely always come up with new ways to change flavors and make it exciting and I am happy to share this one with you today. With the summer I always think of strawberries and cream, which I ate a lot as a kid when it was strawberry season. I definitely recommend freeze dried strawberries over fresh as the flavor is way more intense and there is less water involved, but both works. If you only have rolled oats, you might want to pulse them in a food processor to make them more fine or cook them longer, however it will become way more creamy with quick oats. I hope you enjoy it!
