Oatmeal is always super easy, healthy and delicious. They’re also kid-friendly, heart-healthy, and they stick with you longer than refined cereals. The warm, chai spices in this version give the oats a grown-up flavor, while the banana and dates keep it (naturally) sweet enough for kids. Makes 1 medium serving.
