This EVERYday oatmeal is so delicious. It's packed with protein, carbs, and fibre, and vitamins and minerals that will keep you going strong all morning long. The sweetness of the honey and bananas pair naturally with the nutty oats taste and the pumpkin seeds, and the seeds add a nice crunch to this otherwise soft hot cereal.
You can make your oatmeal with any kind of oats: steel cut, old fashioned rolled oats or quick oats. I often use quick oats for busy mornings when I need to get out the door on time or when I'm packing my breakfast with me on the road. I like the toothy texture of cooking my quick oats by adding boiling water and covering it until they cook, but you may like it cooked down in a pot on the stove, giving you a porridge texture. Either way they all have the same nutritional value so it's a win-win any way you make your oats.
