My little boys thought this recipe was so much fun! Like a lunchbox all rolled into a yummy breakfast. They often have PB&J sandwiches and apple slices for lunch, so this was a really fun new twist on breakfast for them. I loved that the steps get the kids involved, which made getting into the kitchen fun for the whole family. Best of all, the oatmeal was loaded with flavor.
