PB & J Oatmeal

PB & J Oatmeal

Oatmeal is the main staple of my morning routine for so many reasons. It’s easy to prepare, healthy, delicious, cheap, and keeps me full until lunch time. Just a half cup of oatmeal is packed with manganese, fiber, iron, phosphorus, zinc vitamin B1, vitamin b5, and the list goes on.

“Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth,” says Licensed Nutritionist, Hrefna Palsdottir. Oatmeal can lower cholesterol, improve blood sugar control, and even help you lose weight!

The thing I love about oatmeal is that it’s so versatile in terms of how you can flavor it. Not sold yet? Luckily, I have a recipe that might turn your oat dissatisfaction around. My all-time favorite oatmeal combination is the recipe listed below, which combines my love for peanut butter and jelly with my love for a warm and satisfying bowl of creamy oatmeal. I typically use frozen berries in this recipe as they’re more affordable, and help cool down the oatmeal before eating.

PB & J Oatmeal

1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds

½ cup plain rolled or steel cut oats

½ cup almond, cashew, or coconut milk

½ cup water

Pinch of salt

Dash of cinnamon

1 Tbsp. of all-natural peanut butter

1-2 tsp. of Bonne Maman Preserves (any flavors work, but I prefer raspberry or wild blueberry)

¼ cup frozen or fresh Maine blueberries

¼ cup frozen or fresh strawberries

Instructions:

  1. Combine chia seeds, oats, salt, and liquids together in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Heat in the microwave for 2-2 ½ minutes (follow the cooking instructions on the box)
  3. Add cinnamon, peanut butter, preserves, and berries.
  4. Stir and enjoy with any other desired toppings (nuts, coconut flakes, bananas, etc.)

Enjoy!
