Strawberry and Peanut Butter Oatmeal

I have been an avid Oatmeal for Breakfast kind of gal for almost a year now. Not only is it a hearty, healthy breakfast, but as a nursing mother it helped me maintain my milk production.  So I am always looking for different ways to prepare it without adding sugar.

Here is a new recipe I found in the 21 Day Fix Extreme Eating Plan.  I prepare mine a little different than the recipe in the eating plan.

What you'll need:
  • 1 Cup of Hot Water
  • 1/4 Cup Quick Cook Steel-Cut or Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp Smooth All-Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 Cup of Sliced Strawberries

I use a Pyrex 2-cup Measuring cup and heat 2 cups of water in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. You'll only use 1 cup, but I like to heat more just in case the boys decide that they want some.

While my water is heating I go ahead and add my oats, strawberries and PB to my bowl.  Once the water is heated, I slowly pour a little at a time to the mixture until it is at the consistency I like.  I prefer that my oatmeal is not soupy.  You can add as much water as you'd like until it is to the consistency you prefer. 

Sit back and enjoy. And if you are doing the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan, this breakfast is 1 Yellow, 1 Purple, and 1 tsp.

Let me know what you think!
