Raspberry Chocolate Fig Oatmeal

Raspberry Chocolate Fig Oatmeal

I have to admit it, sometimes my best creations come from me being ravenously hungry. The reason? I’m ok to throw almost everything I have in the kitchen into a bowl to eat. And mostly, the crazy combinations taste fantastic. I have to say, I was really impressed with this one. The flavor combinations were perfect!
