Classic PB & J Oatmeal


This is definitely my new favorite way to eat my oats for breakfast. I used to always eat them with maple syrup and cinnamon, which gets really boring after the 100th time. I don't know why I didn't think of this earlier! I'm a sucker for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Not only is it delicous, its a great and quick easy breakfast, high in fiber so it's really filling, and high in protein, especially with the added peanut butter!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups prepared steel cut oats (you obviously don't have to use steel cut)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp jelly or jam (my favorite is strawberry!)
  • 1/4 cup berries (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Enjoy and Happy Eating!
