In the winter, a warm bowl of oats is so comforting. When I’ve got time, I like to bake my oats, because it makes the kitchen smell incredible and it tastes so indulgent while being very nutritious. Oats are very calming on the stomach and I find that I can digest them well. I also exercise in the morning before eating, so these oats, with peanut butter, bananas, and blueberries, are a perfect post-workout refuel meal. You could also easily serve this as a dessert by baking in some chocolate chips!
