Oatmeal With Yogurt & Pecans

(1 serving)

  • 1/2 cup dry oatmeal
  • 1 cup juice
  • handful of chopped pecans
  • cut up banana or shredded apple
  • 1/2 cup low fat yogurt
Put 1/2 cup dry oatmeal and 1 cup of juice in a microwave safe bowl and cook in the microwave on high for 2 minutes.

After cooked, sprinkle a small handful of chopped pecans, add a cut up banana or shredded apple and cover with 1/2 cup of low fat yogurt.

I have used many different juices such as apple or orange to give a different, sweet taste to the oatmeal. The pecans add a crunch and many health benefits. The cut up banana or shredded apple adds more fiber and makes for a very filling breakfast. I like to try different yogurt flavors to add interest and a hot/cold sensation. Cinnamon is a nice addition when using apple juice and vanilla yogurt. This is a low calorie, filling breakfast with many health benefits!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank tlcinmn for this recipe.
