Healthy Recipe: “PB and J” Oats

After traveling all week, I didn’t feel like hitting the grocery store when I got home last night, which meant no apples or bananas for my usual oatmeal. So I got a little creative!

This combo takes like a delicious PB&J, but even better because the berries add so much flavor.

    • It’s easier to mix and it takes most of the fat out, so it brings the calorie count down too. Sometimes I’ll add other nuts to add some good fat back in, but there’s mixed reviews on peanut oil being a good fat.

      • Nice! A little lower in protein than a serving of regular PB but not bad given the much lower calories. And, I have to say, I will have a hard time resisting trying the Chocolate PB2.
