Peanut Butter & Jelly Porridge
So technically this recipe doesn’t use jam or jelly but ‘PB&J’ definitely describes the taste and texture of this porridge/oatmeal very well. It’s the perfect winter breakfast! Some almond or cashew butter would also be an amazing alternative to peanut butter.
1 cup organic rolled oats
1 cup water
1 cup almond milk or milk of choice + about 2-3 tbsp to serve
1 tsp vanilla powder or essence
2 tbsp of 100% peanuts peanut butter or nut butter of choice
1 cup of frozen strawberries, thawed
Sweetener of choice (optional, I found the strawberries added enough sweetness)
In a saucepan bring the oats, water, milk, vanilla and sweetener to boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Stir regularly for about 10 minutes. When the liquid has been soaked up and the oats are cooked, transfer the mixture into two bowls and stir through the peanut butter.
To make the ‘jam/jelly’, simply blend the strawberries in a blender until they form a liquid. Stir this through the oats. Drizzle on a few tablespoons of milk and serve.
