Recipe: Cinnamon Bun Oats
Anyone who knows me really well knows that I am absolutely obsessed with cinnamon buns (when I first started eating healthy I actually had dreams about them because I wasn't letting myself eat them). For a while I've been trying to come up with something that tastes like cinnamon buns but isn't completely terrible for you and I think I've finally got it!
