Ingredients and their benefits:

  • Dried Oats (fiber and protein)
  • Coconut Oil (improves skin, digestion, and energy)

Save this recipe for year round delicious-ness and just change up the ingredients! During the fall I like to substitute the banana and instead add pumpkin or sweet potato. In the spring I’ll go another direction and add in some frozen blueberries or strawberries. There is no limit to the amount of possibilities and outcomes you can make with just these basic steps and ingredients! This is an awesome recipe to have handy all year around.
