Oatmeal Breakfast – Yummm

Oatmeal connoisseur … that’ s how I’d describe my love for oatmeal.  However recently a new friend at Justin’s Almond Butter and a newly discovered blogger, OhSheGlows, taught me how to kick it up a notch.   All I have to say is Yummm and enjoy.

1/2 tbsp peanut butter or Justin’s Almond Butter

1 cup liquid (water or almond milk)
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt

  1. In a medium-sized pot over medium heat cook the banana and butter or coconut oil, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in 1/2 tbsp peanut butter and add the oats, chia, liquid, spices, salt and vanilla.  Whisk until combined.
  3. Bring to a low boil and reduce heat to a simmer, stirring often for 8-10 minutes.  Remove from heat.
  4. Scoop into a bowl and add toppings.
  5. Enjoy.

Recipe is slightly modified from the one published by OhSheGlows, still it’s just as yummy.
