Oatmeal is a go to breakfast in my house, as in everyday my children eat oatmeal. I have made it so many different ways, cinnamon and brown sugar with carmalized apples, mashed up banana and maple syrup, fresh berries, frozen berries (mashed). You name I have probably tried it. So in wanting to try something different and to change it up a bit, I had the idea to put in 2 of my children’s favorite things- Peanut Butter and Jelly and it was, and will be for a while a huge hit. My 3-year-old loves to stir in her own jelly, so I add the PB to all of the oatmeal, then top her’s with a dolup of Jelly. I am not a huge oatmeal eater, but I will eat it this way. We eat so much Oatmeal that I buy 50 LBS bags from Honest Weight Food Co-op, if you have not been in I highly recommend you do.
1 1/2 C Rolled Oats
3 C Water
1/4 C Milk
2 T Peanut Butter ( Or your favorite Nut Butter)
2 T Jelly
Place water and oats in a sauce pan and cook on high heat until it comes to a small boil then turn the heat down to low, cook until it becomes the consistency you like- I say about 15 minutes. When oatmeal is done cooking stir in milk, PB and Jelly. This is just what I do, so if you like more or less of anything go ahead and go for it.
