Oatmeal is very filling, and the complex carbohydrates will give you energy throughout the day to help you avoid that mid-morning slump. Oats are also high in vitamins and minerals, including iron and calcium. They are also good for heart health, helping to lower bad cholesterol levels in the blood and digestive tract.

On their own, plain oats are pretty boring. To add interest to this recipe, we sweeten it with honey and provide texture with chia seeds. Try your favorite Eastern Shore Honey. We think that Clover works nicely, as the mild flavor and sweetness would complement the vanilla and yogurt in the recipe very well. Since its national blueberry month, try adding Blueberry honey for a nod to the powerful little blue fruit, rich in antioxidants.
