Banana Blueberry Oatmeal

Y'all know I have a major sweet tooth. Yes, I'm a self-proclaimed sweet addict. And lately, it has been overtaking my life and causing me to indulge in my sweet cravings a little more than usual.
So when I saw this Sugar Crush 30 day Sugar-Free Challenge, I knew it would be something for me to try to get my sweet tooth back under control. And maybe lose a few pounds along the way too {smile}.

During these next 30 days, I will be sharing healthy recipes with you that help curb those sweet cravings as I stumble through this 30 day Sugar Crush Challenge.

My first recipe as part of this challenge makes for a great way to start your day. It has fruit and nuts, antioxidants, warms you up, keeps your tummy full, is delicious, and ready in about five minutes. All this and with no added sugar, my recipe for Banana Blueberry Oatmeal. One of my favorite ways to wake up in the morning, along with my cup of coffee {smile}.
