Do you remember Creme Savers? Those little circular candies that looked like colorful versions of the free after-dinner-peppermints that restaurants serve, but taste like a vanilla-berry milkshake? I was a little obsessed for a while.
Now I haven't eaten these tiny treats for almost a decade, but for whatever reason, I recently woke up with a hankering. However, as a bowl full of candy is not usually my first breakfast choice (and we had none in the house), I decided to harness my craving on a bowl of oatmeal.
And it was incredible. Ok, I'm just going to say it. It was the best oatmeal I've ever made (not including cookies; they obviously don't count).
Oh, and bonus points. Fresh berries and yogurt are actually nice to your body. A bowl of this oatmeal first thing in the morning will keep you full, happy, and energized until lunchtime.
I can't say the same for it's sugar-happy counterpart.
So here you go. Happy breakfasting!
