Although I like any good breakfast, the best are the ones I’ve planned out the night before.
There’s just something about creating a recipe in my head and then having to wait to make it – it makes me happy to get up in the morning and get going so I can sit down to breakfast.
And, today, I actually got up on time! Go me. Let’s see if we can keep this ball rolling for the rest of the week.
The last time I made oats-in-a-jar, I thought that would be end of the jar, but I couldn’t finish it!
I ended up leaving about 1 Tbsp of almond butter in this jar and knew it was time to finish her off.
My bananas weren’t really ripe yet, so I used an apple for the fruit in my breakfast today. I really love the apple bites in oatmeal – I’ve never been a fan of just apple flavor in oatmeal (like the instant packets), but having semi-soft apple pieces mixed in gives the oatmeal such a great texture!
- 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
- 1 small apple, chopped and cooked in the microwave with cinnamon for 1:30
- 1 Tbsp butterscotch chips, most mixed in – a few on top
- 1 tsp or so pumpkin butter
- about 1 tbsp almond butter at bottom of jar
The almond butter, pumpkin butter, and butterscotch chips don’t hurt either ;)
Do you dream up food combinations and get super excited to finally try them? Or am I the only one?
