weekend breakfasts are the best, right!? while oatmeal is a go to every day of the week for the most part, i wanted to give it a little upgrade for the weekend. with creamy peanut butter oats and warm mashed strawberries, you can’t go wrong with this fabulous combo!
there are a million and one ways to make oatmeal, and i love experimenting in the kitchen. this recipe is nothing novel but i wanted to bring a classic back to basics.
there’s no added sugar in the oatmeal or strawberries, but you could totally add a drizzle of maple syrup or some coconut sugar.
the base is incredibly simple and the absolute creamiest! i get so many questions whenever i make oatmeal, especially regarding the creaminess factor.
there a few ways to make your oats extra creamy! you can add some dairy free yogurt, coconut cream, or nut/seed butter.
this recipe has 1.5 tbsp of super creamy, almost runny peanut butter in it. you can always add a little more to the top by the way, but it’s important to use in the oatmeal itself for creaminess.
also, instead of just cooking the oats with water, i think doing half water and half nut or seed milk makes all of the difference in the world!
the oatmeal only takes 7-8 minutes to cook, so you can have a nutrient-packed breakfast made in no time. the best part about Single Serving Peanut Butter Oatmeal and Strawberries is that it will actually keep you full.
i refuse to eat a breakfast that isn’t going to keep me full until lunch time and between the healthy fats and carbs, this recipe absolutely will.
