Healthy Breakfast Creme Brulee Main 1

Healthy Breakfast Crème Brûlée

I love oatmeal. I really do. But my biggest complaint about oatmeal is that it's quite visually unappealing. So making oatmeal sexy was one of my goals. It's so tasty and healthy, and I think more people would enjoy it if it didn't look like a big, grayish-brown blob. Did I succeed?
