Raid your pantry to make this delicious and super easy peanut butter banana oatmeal. It's quick and packed with fiber to power your work day.

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1
Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/2 banana sliced
  • sprinkle of cinnamon ~I add 1/4 teaspoon
Instructions
  1. Combine rolled oats, water, and pinch of salt in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2.5-3 minutes.

  2. Stir oatmeal, then add peanut butter, banana, and cinnamon

Recipe Notes

-You can make this on the stovetop

-I love making oatmeal packets to bring to eat at work, instead of using regular peanut butter, I use a teaspoon of peanut butter powder, and dried fruit. I add all these ingredients to a bag, and pour it into boiling water. Let stand for 5 minutes until thickened.

-This flavored oatmeal is delicious day of, and also days after. You can increase the portion size, cook the oatmeal, and then refrigerate individual servings for quick breakfasts during the week. Just heat the oatmeal up as needed, and enjoy.

 

Make sure to put the oatmeal in a giant bowl to microwave, it likes to grow and overflow. I’ve made this mistake far too many times.

    […] they’re naturally whole grain and can be eaten raw (like in this mixed berry smoothie) or cooked for breakfast really […]
