PB&J Oatmeal

Yep. You read that right. Honey roasted organic peanut butter cooked with the oats and topped with jam and toasted nuts. I was craving strawberry or raspberry jam but all I had was apricot. I was also out of peanuts so I toasted pumpkin seeds. Still pretty tasty.

PB&J Oatmeal:  Serves 1

  • 1/2 C. Oatmeal*
  • 1 C.  Water
  • About a 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
  • 1 Tbs. Organic honey roasted creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2- 1 tsp. of honey (if you don’t have the honey roasted peanuts)
  • 2 tsp. Jam of your choice – I love homemade Strawberry or Raspberry (recipe to come)
  • 1-2 Tbs. Chopped roasted peanuts

Method:

  • Bring the water and cinnamon to a boil.
  • Stir in the oats & peanut butter (and honey if using) and cook for 5 minutes, stirring enough to keep the oats from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • I like my oatmeal “al dente” so I keep cooking till most of the moisture has been absorbed.
  • Top with the jam and the chopped peanuts

*Note: I use Quaker rolled oats because I’m on a budget but feel free to use your favorite brand and cook longer if required
