Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal
Ah, peanut butter and jelly. Don't we all just crave a good old PB &J sandwich sometimes?
But have you ever tried it in your oatmeal? I have...and let me tell you, it's my new favorite way to eat breakfast. You won't believe how filling and DELICIOUS it is.
It's especially good with homemade jam and fresh berries. I am so glad to have found a way to use some of my devastating jam disaster. Since my 'disaster' jam was so sweet, I used a less than I would if it were a low sugar version.
I just found out that tomorrow, April 2, is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, so it's the perfect time to try a warm and happy bowl of Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal, assuming you have no nut allergies. You won't regret it!
A recipe is really not required, but in case you like specifics:
To make one serving:
1/2 c. rolled oats
1 c. water
Put in glass bowl and microwave for 2.5 to 3 minutes. If your oatmeal tends to boil over like mine does, put a little salt in before cooking, and stop to stir each minute. If you have given up your microwave, which I am still considering after writing this post, by all means, cook the oatmeal in a pot on the stove. :)
1 T. peanut butter (or more!)
1 T. jam
and swirl in the bowl to make it pretty.
Throw a small handful of fresh berries on top if you have them, and you have the best bowl of oatmeal EVER.
I'm somewhat addicted to this scrumptious, filling, and just-sweet-enough breakfast!
