PB&J

Happy Sunday dear bloggies!

I’ve never been a fan of the acclaimed peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Yes, I am American, just not a PB&J sandwhich fan. That is not to say that I’ve kicked the can on all peanut butter + jelly + carb combos. Throw out the bread slices, add some oatmeal and I’m down for plenty of PB&J’s. Take for example this morning’s breakfast: peanut butter and jelly boatmeal. I’d been wanting to try baked oatmeal ever since Katie posted about it.

So I mixed together:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup apple sauce
  • 1 1/2 t peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 t raspberry jam
  • a sprinkle of cinnamon
  • a sprinkle of salt

Then poured the mix into 2 small greased ramekins (not sure if the greasing part was necessary) and baked at 375 for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes I sprinkled on some sucanat and broiled the tops for 2-3 minutes. Breakfast was served.

Love the crisp carmel-y top

A strawberry on top for aesthetic reasons (would have been better if the jam was strawberry)

PB&J, yay or nay?

Favorite oatmeal mix-in?

  1. Me loveeee pb & j! When we have bread (not too often being gluten-free), I eat a sandwich every chance I get :). I love switching out the peanut butter for others like almond butter, etc. I love applsacue with nut butter, too. Nut butter is pretty tasty in any circumstance I think ;)

  2. Love it! This is such a creative twist on my traditional bowl of breakfast oats. My favorite mix-ins to my morning oatmeal are a sliced banana, a spoonful of jam, toasted chopped walnuts, and a little cinnamon. It’s divine! (and when it comes to peanut butter and jelly, I absolutely love it rolled into a tortilla shell!).

  3. i’m alright with pb&j…but i’m more of a pb&h ((peanut butter and honey + cinnamon!!)) and i’m really not crazy about jelly on my oatmeal..but i’d have to give it another try..cause i didn’t really like the jelly anyway! this baked oatmeal looks great
