Peanut Butter and Honey Oatmeal – It’s as simple as it gets, but this yummy peanut butter oatmeal is one of my FAVORITES! (Gluten free, dairy free)
I know that oatmeal isn’t usually something to look at.
And a lot of us have flashbacks of eating mostly cold pasty mush when we think of oatmeal.
But this is different! I promise.
It’s just the right amount of sweet, has a great texture, and is incredibly fast to make. Oh, did I mention it’s ridiculously inexpensive? Oh, because it’s REALLY inexpensive.
If your morning are rushed, you can pack this dry in a container then add water when you get to work and presto! Breakfast in 1 minute. In the winter, I’d even take this for a warm lunch some days. It just seemed to hit the spot–warm, comforting–you’ll love it.
Oatmeal makes a great breakfast. This whole grain has soluble fiber to help keep you full, and is very welcoming of new flavors. I like using old-fashioned rolled oats for this–I find that instant oats or quick-cooking oats just turn to mush–but you can certainly use quick-cooking oats if you prefer. The same concept works well with almond or cashew butters as well. You can even garnish with chopped nuts for extra crunch.
I know it’s silly to post a “recipe” for oatmeal, but I’ve loved it and if you’re looking for a way to change things up, well, this is it.
