Maple Syrup and Walnut Oatmeal Recipe

Maple Syrup and Walnut Oatmeal Recipe

This delicious oatmeal recipe is my invention, based on the flavours I think work together, and with ingredients I know are healthy and tasty. I have been eating oatmeal for decades, but not the prepackaged and preflavoured kind (gross!).  The store-bought variety is too simple and unidimensional. Besides, I prefer a slightly saltier oatmeal to compensate for less sugar.

I have been making my own oatmeal for a long time, and I have tried many flavours and varieties and have found one that I can’t live without. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
