A simple way to elevate oatmeal

I eat oatmeal for breakfast pretty much every day. It’s cheap, it’s vegan, it’s healthy, and easy to customize. But lately it feels very… Blah.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Cue sauteed nuts.

Literally just put nuts in a pan on low to medium heat (you don’t want burned nuts, believe me)

Pecans and walnuts toast so well.

And then add them to your oatmeal. I usually make individual bowlfuls in the microwave, add a dab of honey, a bit of brown sugar, and these divine nuts.

Small changes for a huge improvement in flavor.

I love things like this which are just a tiny moment that can make my day a lot better. And since I did a whole pan full of nuts at once, I can save them for oatmeal for the next week or two. A little gift from me to me.
