If you love peanut butter, and are willing to try anything, I think you'll like this. I didn't like oatmeal, and I needed to find a way to start eating it. So I decided to be daring one morning, and I'm so glad I was! I love oatmeal now! I have this for breakfast EVERY day! It is perfect with a cup of coffee, and an awesome bed-time snack. Mmmmm! For me it's just oh so good! 30 cal-jam 70 cal-peanut butter 113 cal- oatmeal
- Microwave oatmeal and water on high for 1 minute and 20 seconds or until the oatmeal just starts to "bubble.".
- Add peanut butter and jam randomly on top of oatmeal; microwave again for 20-30 seconds, or until the peanut butter melts.
- Stir and enjoy.
Oh yum, yum, yum, this oatmeal is so tasty! I loved the flavour combination and the ease of prep in the microwave. I had never made my oatmeal in the microwave before, but it worked so well, Ill make it again this way, for sure. I had old-fashioned oats, so the cook time was a little longer.
3 ts jam was too much for my taste, I think next time Ill just use 2.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Little Italy.
Made and reviewed for Think Pink October 2012.
Using just enough milk to cover my oats in place of water makes for a creamier oatmeal. I love PB with strawberry jam, so I plopped in strawberry instead of raspberry. I prefer more PB to jam like the recipe, and it's fun to make a PB face with a jam smiley. Hey, you're never too old to be a little silly. :) :P :S :B 8B ^_^ >_< O_o
Made for "Tag It Red!" I actually have now had this twice for breakfast. The first time I made it as written and thought that the peanut butter flavor was a little too much. The second time I made this, I reduced the peanut butter by half and it was much better. Thanks for posting this Little Italy ~ I'll be making it often for breakfast since I love PB&J.
