Oatmeal is a very nutrient-dense whole grain that is good for the body. Well, it is if we don't add a lot of sugar and other bad things to it like granola, butter, sugar, etc.  I have come to love my bowl of morning oatmeal! Since I require a lot of protein intake, I've come up with this high protein recipe.

Of course, you can add things to or modify this, but I have a reason for every ingredient that is used.

I normally sweeten this with monk fruit extract, but will sometimes use a tablespoon of local honey.

Garnish the top with a sprinkling of unsoaked chia seeds for a pleasant little crunch.
