One of my favorite breakfasts. I invented this version, but my Mom deserves some credit for it too. It can be mixed the night before, and refrigerated in a covered bowl/microwave safe container. In the morning all you have to do is microwave it and mix in the peanut butter.
You know the story. You go to the store and buy that variety pack of instant oatmeal. The kids get their favorite flavor and you're stuck with the bag of regular. ICK Here is a way you can jazz up that bag of regular instant oatmeal.
This recipe came from the February/March 2003 issue of Taste of Home's Light and Tasty. I really have enjoyed this recipe and the ease of preparation. Also, very economical to have on hand. Those small packets of pre-flavored oatmeal do get pricey. 3 points per serving.
