I have been eating oatmeal for breakfast to eat healthier. I have been adding ingredients to make it more flavorful and this is my favorite right now. It's so easy to make and even the kids will like this flavor. This is diabetic friendly and will make you feel full for hours.
Total Time: 2-3 minutes
Yield: 1 serving
I like to make oatmeal in the microwave.
I put some in a bowl, and put tap water in it until it is completely covering the oatmeal and it is not thick, but loose.
I microwave for 2 minutes and thirty seconds on high.
Then I put a small amount of butter and some maple syrup in the oatmeal. This alone is good. I then add peanut butter, a tablespoon, and mix it all up.
This adds a little protein to the oatmeal and it is very good!
I make instant oatmeal for breakfast several times a week. I've started adding a tablespoon of peanut butter after it's been cooked. I stir it in with a little bit of milk. It tastes delicious, and adds a little boost nutritionally. My kids absolutely love it!
When your peanut butter jar is almost empty don't waste the last of your jar. Put your hot oatmeal into your peanut butter jar, mix well.
