Warm, sweet caramel oats. Yum!

Its winter her in AUS, so it is time to get creative with our oatmeal combinations. I love adding superfoods to oatmeal. Mesquite is high in dietary fiber and protein. It also contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and the amino acid lysine. It is a delicious little powder that gives a caramel like flavor and is suitable for children from 10 months of age. Combined with banana and raisins this sweet caramel like porridge is a winner for both adults and children. Enjoy x
