Recipe by HokiesMom
From Quaker Oats recipe booklet from 1989. My kids love this for breakfast but I love it too as I'm such a peanut butter nut (pun intended). Top this or swirl in your favorite jelly or preserves. I love using strawberry preserves or apple jelly.

I'm sorry to say this, but this recipe didn't wow my husband and I. I used old fashioned oats, and topped mine with black berry jam, and hubby topped his with seedless red raspberry jam (about 1-1/2 tablespoons each), but the taste of peanut butter didn't come through. One thing I did want to mention, be sure to let the oatmeal set for about 5 minutes or so before eating, as this oatmeal is quite 'hot' temp-wise, and you don't want to burn your tongue.
- 2 1⁄4 cups water
- 1 1⁄3 cups oats, uncooked (quick cooking or old fashioned)
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
- 1 -2 tablespoon jelly (your choice of flavor) or 1 -2 tablespoon preserves (your choice of flavor)
