Happy Fourth of July!!! ¬†We started our day off with a super yummy and patriotic breakfast. ūüôā ¬†This “red, white, and blue” oatmeal is a really easy breakfast with a fun spin, in that it is decorated as an american flag…not exact, but you get the idea! ¬†Not only does it look neat, it’s delicious, and super good for you! ¬†With raspberries, blueberries, and bananas, this breakfast has tons of nutrition in it!

Woo-hoo!  All that nutrition in a delicious and satisfying breakfast!

I realized after making this that some cinnamon and almond butter would lend itself really well to this dish…hmmm, next year. Just kidding, this stuff is so delicious, I can pretty much guarantee it will make a reoccurrence here in our household in the near future! ¬†Okay, let’s get to the recipe!
