Here’s a little breakfast that’s not only pretty to look at, but will keep you going all morning! Packed with hearty oats, yogurt and fruit with a touch of honey for sweetness, I promise you’ll feel more and more American with every spoonful. May your Fourth of July be happy, healthy, and delicious in every way!

- Toppings of your choosing: Fruit (I chose bananas, blueberries, and strawberries for the holiday!). chopped nuts, nut butter, dried coconut, dried cereal, etc.
