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?
