Peanut Butter and Jam Protein Oatmeal

Yes, I admit it and you have most likely seen me blog about it. I hate warm oatmeal (or any warm/hot cereal, for that matter).

Or should I say, hated warm oatmeal.

When I started reading the blog, Carrots'n'Cake, I saw the author, Tina, putting peanut butter in her just cooked oatmeal. GAME CHANGER. I am now an warm oatmeal lover! Thank you Tina!

And what goes better with peanut butter than jelly and jam! I don't know about all of you, but I prefer strawberry jams and jellies as opposed to grape.

So bring on the berries!


Is it just me or are strawberries one of the most beautiful berries?



I also added some protein powder to this oatmeal to amp up the protein content. With the ingredients I used, this recipe has 20 grams of healthy plant protein per serving! Yeah! What a great way to start your day! This oatmeal makes me want to get out of bed and paired with a nice cup of coffee, can breakfast get any better?







Peanut Butter and Jam Protein Oatmeal


*1 serving*


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup of almond milk or whatever milk you drink (dairy, rice, soy, etc.)
  • 1 heaping Tbsp of peanut butter
  • 1 heaping Tbsp of jam (I used strawberry)
  • 1/4 cup of quick cooking steel cut oats
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I used Sunwarrior vegan protein powder)
  • maple syrup (for drizzling)
  • 1 tsp of hemp seeds (you could also sub chia seeds or ground flaxseeds)

NOTE: If you would like to use old-fashioned or rolled oats, increase almond milk to 1 cup and oats to 1/2 cup.


Method


Place milk and oats in a small saucepan, bring to a boil then immediately reduce to a simmer. Simmer oats for 3-5 minutes or until 80-90% of the liquid has been absorbed. Transfer oats to a bowl then thoroughly mix protein powder with oats. Place a dollop of peanut butter and a dollop of jam on top of the oatmeal. Drizzle oatmeal with maple syrup and sprinkle with hemp seeds. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
