Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Today I want to share a recipe of sorts with you. It is what I eat for breakfast pretty much everyday. There are sometimes when I eat something else, but not many. This is a super simple and very customizable breakfast item.

1. Make any kind of oatmeal you like (instant, old fashioned, steel cut, whatever you like).

2. Stir in a spoonful of peanut butter (whatever you like best though a good natural peanut butter is the best option).

3. EAT!

Pretty simple right?

This is what I have been using. I really like the Oat Fit by Better Oats Maple & Brown Sugar flavor oatmeal. By itself it tastes great and the Oat Fit is only 100 calories per serving. I have been using the Skippy peanut butter because it is what we have, but when that runs out I will be switching to a natural peanut butter.

Stir in a scoop of peanut butter.

Now some flavor combinations work better than others. Maple & Brown Sugar has been my favorite mixed with the peanut butter.
