Make an in-between layer by adding your chopped apple and a pinch of cinnamon, banana slices and/or berries on top of the oat layer!

Pink layer: Blend your berries (i'm using raspberries and strawberries), a splash of water and half a large banana or 1 small one into berry banana "mylk". Add sweetener to your liking. Then pour over your oatmeal and garnish with berries and/or fruit slices!
