PB&J Oats

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 1.5 minutes

Difficulty: easy

This is one of my go-to breakfasts when I’m tired of eggs. The key to this recipe? The peanut butter! Adding peanut butter provides with fat and protein needed to balance out the carbohydrate-heavy oats, which will prevent crazy blood sugar spikes and dips.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup dry oats
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 handful frozen blueberries
  • 1 spoonful of peanut butter or nut butter
  • 1 drizzle of honey
  • 1 sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

Directions

  1. Place the oats, frozen blueberries, and water into a bowl and microwave for 90 seconds or until cooked through
  2. Add other ingredients and stir to combine

Notes

  • Substitute milk of your choice for water to boost calories and flavor
  • Add in extra ingredients like nuts, coconut, bananas, and flax seed to keep you full even longer!
