This is a great filling breakfast that provides carbs for energy from the oats and fruit, as well as protein to keep you full from the low fat cottage cheese. Plus it tastes amazing! Could also be a sweet spot snack if you do crave cheese cake . I mean that never happens to me, I have no idea what you are talking about. I am only making that suggestion for other people.
Any who, another bonus of this super easy oatmeal with the mostest is you can make a huge batch and have a healthy snack for later in the week (or that day… who is that person…?). Or it will solve the morning dilemma of what to make for breakfast. Oh no worries- it is really tasty straight from the fridge!
