However, this morning I was having a problem deciding what to eat so I decided to eat my oats dry. No milk, water, coffee; nothing. Just plain.
It's not the first time I've done this, but instead I decided to throw in things that I had on hand to make a quick stove-top granola. I still ate it dry, but it was so much tastier.

How to make quick stove top granola
Raisins, pears, dried cranberries or blueberries also make a great addition, or drizzle honey over your granola. Add your preference of liquid if you don't want to eat it dry. Remember different foods change the macronutrient totals.
