Take me on Vacation Oatmeal

Ingredients: 
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant) 
1/2 cup oat bran 
1/8 tsp sea salt 
1 cup unsweetened almond milk 
1/4 cup protein powder (optional) 
1 ripe mango, peeled and pitted, diced 
1 tsp roasted golden flaxseed 
2 tbsp chopped cashews 
1 tbsp unsweetened flaked coconut 

Preparation: 
Combine oats, oat bran and salt with 2 1/4 cups water in a small saucepan over medium high heat until simmering. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring until mixture thickens and water is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit two minutes. 
Divide cereal equally between 2 bowls. Whisk together almond milk and protein powder, and pour over cereal. Top with mango, flaxseed, cashews and coconut. 

This was delicious! I could eat it all day long!
