Peanut butter and oats plain and simple!! One of my favorite oatmeals in the morning when I'm feeling the need for something with added protein. WW points = 4


  1. Combine oats and water.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 minute and stir. Return to microwave and heat on high stirring every 30 seconds until desired consistency is reached. Adding the peanut butter will thicken the oatmeal a little. I do mine for about 2 minutes and 30 seconds in my 1200 watt microwave.
  3. Add natural peanut butter and stir until incorporated.

I was looking for a way to put more protein in my diet and I came across this idea. This is now my favorite breakfast. I actually change the proportions substantially and I also add in some whey protein. When I'm done, I have a great meal. Thanks for posting. 1/3 cup oats, 1 cup water, several tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 scoop whey protein

Simple and delicious. You can't get much easier than this. It's a super healthy way to start the day. I did add a bit of almond milk to the finished product.
