Not Your Same Ole Oatmeal

I have been experimenting the past couple of days with ways to make oatmeal for Coop. He is very hands on with his food and a bowl of oatmeal just won’t do. I have come up with two great recipes and both have been a success! Let me know how they work out for y’all and enjoy!
