Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal

Another month, and it’s already started off super busy. I’m beginning to see a theme here! While tomorrow I have a catch up post, of the more personal kind (which I mostly never do), today I have a simple breakfast recipe that you will absolutely love. It has all of the nostalgic flavors of homemade school lunches, but with a different texture and a comforting warmth about it.

With ingredients that are incredibly easy to attain, you can make this oatmeal breakfast in minutes. In fact, right after I made the first batch I told my mother about it, she was intrigued so I whipped up another serving in no time at all. The verdict? This breakfast is a winner in our books!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal
Recipe type: Breakfast, entrée
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
A delicious and easy recipe that encapsulates the nostalgia of homemade lunches, but for breakfast!
  • ½ Cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ Cup Water
  • ¼ Cup Non-Dairy Milk
  • ½ Cup Mixed Berries, (I used Diced Strawberries and Blackberries)
  • 1½ Tbsp. Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • ¼ tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Small Pinch of Salt
  1. Place the rolled oats, water and non-dairy milk into a small pot over medium heat. Once the water starts to boil, turn it down to low-medium heat.
  2. Stir the rest of the ingredients into the oat mixture and keep stirring until the oatmeal is to your desired consistency (thin or thicker).
  3. Garnish with a bit of peanut butter and an extra berry to be fancy! ;)

Do you have any fruits or spices that are your favorite for oatmeal?

  7. I like to add a bit of chopped nuts to my oatmeal as well.
