So I love oatmeal. I didn’t always but learned to love it when I discovered this and this (available at Healthy Options). Unlike the oatmeal my mom forced on me every single school day of my elementary years, these provided some texture that took my fancy when I first tried it. I’ve acquired the taste for oats since my recent illness. It’s supposed to be good for me. 😉
Sweetened with some kind of sweetener – honey, muscovado or a recent discovery, agave syrup and a sprinkling of some dried fruit, that’s how I normally like my oatmeal.
I recently uncovered though a liking for peanut butter and jelly to go with it. Guava is a favorite but I so happened to have an opened bottle of tomato jam – it worked for me too! Don’t judge until you’ve tried it. It can be very addicting! Umm, that is if you love PB&J as much as I do. Aside from the sweet-savory taste, the PB adds a certain richness to the oatmeal while the J takes care of sweetening it in a special kind of way. I would add more liquid than usual so not to end up with oatmeal that is too thick when mixed with the peanut butter.
So go ahead, give it a try – this might just end up becoming a favorite too. 🙂
