3Cinnamon-Roll Oatmeal

"Let me tell you, this was crazy good," says Wendy of Around My Family Table of her Cinnamon-Roll Oatmeal recipe. "It tastes just like a warm, sweet, gooey cinnamon roll. It takes a fraction of the time of homemade cinnamon rolls and is a bit healthier. It’s still full of sugary good stuff, but it’s nicely balanced with steel cut oats, flax, and chia." 

Yum! We can't wait to try it!
