Lizzy Oatmeal w/ raisins or craisins & walnuts

Submitted by: -THINQ-
Lizzy Oatmeal w/ raisins or craisins & walnuts

Introduction

We LOVE this oatmeal on cold mornings! It has a nom-nom yumminess, and feels very good on an early am tummy!
Yep, it has over 400 calories, (you can SAVE calories by using craisins INSTEAD of the raisins!) but also more than 10g protein, and while it does have 75g carbs, it has no trans fats and nearly 7g of fiber. This may be good for someone who doesn't use processed white or raw Sugar, but it Does! have lots of 'sugars', from the fruit and from the syrup. Try it without the syrup, or even more cinnamon & adding another fruit instead of the sugar, like mashed banana. Hope you like it!
