Perfect Oatmeal

This morning, like every morning, I spruced things up a bit.  After stopping into Starbucks for a quick breakfast and caffeine, an idea struck.  Could I combine coffee and oatmeal into an on-the-go kickstart to my day?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The answer is yes, and it is delicious.  Here’s the recipe:

1 cup of perfect oatmeal, available at Starbucks

1 packet Starbucks Via

1 packet dried fruits (comes with oatmeal)

1/2 packet brown sugar (comes with oatmeal)

1/4 cup walnuts

cinnamon, nutmeg to taste
