It's rhubarb season and I can't believe this was the only thing I've made so far with it! What's awesome about rhubarb, it pairs so well with so many fruits. Blueberries, peaches, strawberries, whatever. They are good alone but adding rhubarb just brings it to another level and changes it so well!
I loved, loved, loved this oatmeal. I ate way too much of it, I just couldn't stop. It was like eating a healthy dessert for breakfast.
I chose to use splenda to keep the calories down. It worked well and at 265 calories for a big portion, it rocked. Incredibly delicious and very filling!
