If you are looking for something different to fix for breakfast…try this one! A fun twist on a bowl of oatmeal!
PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE OATMEAL
3 cups filtered water
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup organic cane sugar or Sucanat
1 teaspoon molasses
1/3 cup peanut butter (natural is best)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
THE NIGHT BEFORE (**See Note below)
In a large saucepan with lid, mix up the water, whole wheat flour, and oats. Put lid on and let sit on counter overnight.
THE NEXT MORNING
Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and stir continually for a few minutes to thicken.
Serve with milk and fruit for a yummy breakfast!
Note: My kids LOVED this. The only thing I would change would be to double the recipe next time. This wasn’t enough for my five hungry children :).
** If you do not have the time or prefer to not soak the flour and oats, just put all the ingredients into your saucepan at once and proceed with the recipe.
