Sweet, decedent, but so good for you.

Sometimes breakfast is a rush but other times it is a slow way to start the day. This bowl is perfect for those types of days because it's too good not to slow down and savor. These oats are perfect for summer when raspberries are in peak season and cheap. Even better if you grow your own and have so many berries to use. Serve this bowl with a cup of coffee and ease into your day.
