Ultimate PB&J Oatmeal

If you haven’t noticed by now, I am obsessed with PB&J. This recipe is one of my favorites because it combines PB&J with Oatmeal, which is one of my favorite breakfasts. Oats keep you full for a long time and have a slow release of energy, so you don’t feel a crash between breakfast and lunch.

This recipe is great for a dorm because all you need is a microwave! It only takes about 7 minutes to make so it is great for a quick morning.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of Gluten Free Rolled Oats*

1 cup of water

3 Tbsp of Peanut Butter

10 Blueberries (Fresh or frozen)

1 Tbsp Chia seeds**

1 Banana

Cinnamon

* You can substitute normal rolled oats if you do not have a gluten allergy.

** I enjoy Chia seeds because they are an excellent source of nutrients, antioxidants, protein, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and are easy to add to everyday foods. Check out this website for more info!

11 Proven Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

Directions:

  1. Place your oats and water into a microwave safe bowl. Stir them up and then microwave for 2 minutes or until the oats have absorbed the water.
  2. Next, in a separate bowl,  microwave your blueberries for 45 seconds if frozen or 30 seconds if fresh and smash with a fork to make your “jelly.” Add to the oats on top or mix it in.
  3. Next, you can either mix in your peanut butter or add it to the top of your oatmeal.
  4. Then add your toppings of choice, I added Chia seeds, a sliced banana, and cinnamon. You could also add hemp seeds, flax seeds, granola, coconut, other fruits, cacao nibs and more!
  5. Enjoy!IMG_3562
