PB + J Oatmeal

PB + J Oatmeal

There are two things that will warm you up on a chilly winter-y morning: a hot cup of coffee and a steamy bowl of hearty oatmeal.

(Okay — staying in bed all snug like a bug in a rug is up there too but, you know… adulting.)

It’s strange to think there was a time that I’d actually brush breakfast off. I don’t know how the heck I functioned, because these days I’m pretty much useless until I’ve indulged in some morning eats and have gotten at least 1/4 way through my luscious brew.

My breakfast rotation might seem boring to some, but I *love* it. When I’m not munching on Chocolate Mini Wheats (which, last year, I realized have more fiber and less sugar than the “healthy” branded fiber cereal I’d been eating), I go between a hard-boiled egg with toast, or a buttery English muffin with jazzed up cottage cheese. (When I say jazzed up, I don’t mean with pineapples; I meant with Sriracha sauce; I’m an animal.) But at least twice a week, I’m digging into a hot, nourishing and flavorful bowl of oats.

When it comes to sprucing up my oats, I bring my ‘A’ Game. Adding a blend of cinnamon and brown sugar is lovely and all, but let’s face it: stopping at cinnamon and sugar is sad AF when you have all of those tempting savory and sweet inspirations out there. Sometimes you just have to switch it up — like with this Grape and Walnut Balsamic Oatmeal With Honey Drizzle.

This PB + J Oatmeal infuses your bowl of oats with nostalgia thanks to the perfect blend of peanut-y goodness + your fave jam.
