Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal

Peanut Butter Jelly Oatmeal

'Bought time I made a Peanut Butter & Jelly version of stovetop oatmeal! This is the creamiest dreamiest and most delish oatmeal!  It is made with simple ingredients and packed with fiber, complex carbs, protein and just the perfect amount of sweetness. I LOVE oatmeal in the winter. It is such a cozy and comforting way to start the day. PS - It also tastes amazing when cold! 

What you need: 

  • Rolled Oats (or quick-cooking oats) - You can purchase gluten-free oats too.
  • Almond Milk - Any other nut milk or even regular milk work great here. I used unsweetened plain almond milk.
  • Ripe, Mashed Banana (or apple sauce) - Adds the perfect texture and just a hint of sweetness. If you do not like banana, add 1/4 of apple sauce or omit entirely. This can be subbed for 1/3 C unsweetened apple sauce.
  • Chia Seeds - Great way to get in more fiber and omega-3s!
  • Peanut Butter - I love natural, creamy peanut butter for this one.
  • Jam - Your fave home or storebought jam. I like ones with simple, quality ingredients.
  • Egg whites - adds fluff and extra protein!
  • Collagen - Option to add this in for extra protein with no taste. You can also use protein powder if you like. 

Serving: This recipe makes one serving. Double it if you want to serve 2-3 people. Alternatively, if you want a smaller serving - it can serve two and you can pair with some greek yogurt for breakfast.
