Peanut butter and jelly oatmeal that’s great for quick mornings and easy breakfasts. Filled with flavor, protein, and fiber, this will keep you full all morning.
Would you hate me if I told you I’ve never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
Yeah, I know- I haven’t lived. When I was younger, I stuck with turkey and cheese or tuna for my school lunches. I was that kid that got the disgusted looks when I pulled out the tuna- worth it. Back then, I didn’t like peanut butter, so I never thought to bring a PB&J to school.
My mom loves them, and I don’t blame her. She has at least one a day- two if she’s a hungry beast. Even now that I like peanut butter, I still haven’t gotten around to making them.
Now that it’s October, the heat wave is FINALLY coming to an end. It’s been upwards of 100 degrees at school, and when you have to wear polos and kaki skirts, you aren’t the happiest camper. My lunches are melting and I’m sweating like crazy just from walking from 1st to 3rd period.
I’ve been cheating on my beloved oats during this heatwave. Smoothie bowls and yogurt parfaits have been my best friends. Since this is my last year of high school, I want to make the most of my mornings before I get to college and have no free time. I tend to leave 20 minutes to make my food and 20 minutes to eat, which is a great way for me to relax before school starts. Plus, with college apps, I’ll take any relaxing time I can get.
So, today I’m sharing one of my current obsessions: peanut butter and jelly oatmeal. WOWZA this is my kind of comfort food. Not only is it delicious, it’s full of nutrients to keep you satisfied through the morning. They only take 30 minutes to make, and if you make a large batch of the compote, then it takes 10!
