Notes

Chef’s Note: For a finer texture, run the oatmeal through a food processor. If you are using regular oats rather than the quick cooking ones, you definitely want to run it through a food processor first for a better texture in the finished product.

We (Lesley and Ann) first met years ago while training for Ironman Wisconsin. Our paths crossed again at Georgia State University while studying to become registered dietitian nutritionists. Over the years, our paths kept crossing and we soon discovered that we shared a love for menu planning. This blossomed into My Menu Pal where we help the food industry up their nutrition game to become their customer's nutrition hero.
