PB & J Oatmeal
Reminiscent of the flavors of a classic peanut butter & jelly sandwich, but with all the nutrition and warming comfort of a nutrient-dense bowl of oats. This recipes take it up a level by using almond or cashew butter and a serving of chia seed jam to add a dose of omega-3’s into the mix. Enjoy!
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups water (or 1 cup water, 1 cup plant-based milk)
1 piece cut up fresh fruit (banana, apple, pear, peaches) or 1 cup berries
¼ teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons nut butter (almond, cashew and peanut work great)
1 heaping tablespoon chia seed jam
Flavor options: cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla (optional)
Toppings: extra nut butter, sliced fruit, fresh berries, raw cacao, goji berries
Cook oatmeal and liquid on stovetop according to directions. Add in fresh fruit. Once cooked, the fruit should be soft and mix into the oats to form a semi-smooth consistency. Sprinkle with additional flavorings of choice and mix. Divide into two bowls and swirl in nut butter and chia seed jam. Bonus points for sprinkling in cinnamon to help with blood sugar regulation. Top with your choice of nutritional boosts.
