Serves 1 hungry Mama + a lil extra for bubby
1 cups of rolled oats

Cook the oats on the stovetop, per the directions on the box
Serve in a bowl and top with the sliced banana, a sprinkle of dark chocolate chips, chia seeds and walnuts. Enjoy immediately.
To make the baby version, spoon some of the cooked oats into a small bowl, and add 1 TBS of chia seeds and 1/2 a banana smashed or cut in small, bite-size pieces

Then I add two heaped tablespoons of organic natural yogurt as well as baby DHA from Nordic Naturals.
