Strawberry Banana Oatmeal

It’s always fun experimenting with different flavors while making a bowl of oatmeal – especially when I can transform delicious, traditional desserts into a healthier version made of oats!
(Yes, my sweet tooth is very demanding at all times of the day)But sometimes, it’s always nice to go back to an oldie but goodie by using simple ingredients. In this case: less is much, much more 🙂
