Ginger Walnut Apricot Oatmeal!

It’s Fall and the crisp mornings are here!  What better than a nice big comforting bowl of oatmeal to start your day?  Oatmeal is full of fiber that will keep you going all morning long and keep you away from that office doughnut or bagel!  Now, oatmeal can have a strange texture and be somewhat boring when left on it’s own…so that’s why we doctor it up!  Add a bunch of sugar and butter then right?  Nope!  Let’s add crunch and spice…ultimately let’s add more health with the right toppings!
