We’ve finally been experiencing weather here in NY that doesn’t warrant having oats for breakfast, but since I came back from my spring break and had NOTHING in the house, this was what I’ve had for two mornings in a row. I felt the need to share because of my love for all peanut butter and jelly flavored items.
Just wanted to give a quick shout out to Syracuse basketball. Heartbreaking loss last night. I don’t usually get upset about sports, usually I could care less and I make fun of Austin for getting emotionally involved in sports. But this one stung this morning. We had a good run though!
Back to the food. I haven’t had oats for breakfast in awhile as a result of cutting a lot of grains out of my diet. But like I said, this was all we had so I went with it.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Oats
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I use designer whey)
2 tbsp PB 2 (or peanut butter) + 1 tbsp water to make creamy
1 tbsp your choice flavored jam
1 cup of water
peanuts for topping
**Add 1-2 packets of stevia or sweetener of choice if needed
1. Microwave the water and oats for 90 seconds.
2. Stir in protein powder and microwave for another minute. *Stir in sweetener here if adding.
3. Stir everything up and add your PB2, jelly, and peanuts.
Nice little Sunday morning. You’d think it was still winter. Oh wait….I wouldn’t hold my breath that we won’t see snow again.
How’s the weather where you are? Still winter or spring?
