Oatbran’s Back

Good morning!

I’m sad the long weekend is over :(  We finally had nice weather, and it was just so much fun to spend time outside with Maggie and hang out with friends!

No chocolate covered coffee beans on my oatmeal this morning, but dark chocolate chips are just as good :)

And oatbran is back! I keep forgetting that I have it in the cabinet.

  • 1/3 cup oatbran, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp crunchy pb
  • 1 Tbsp dark chocolate chips

Maggie has been so well behaved this morning! And she pretty much crashed last night once she ate dinner and had a bath – she slept on the couch right beside us last night :)

My throat is still hurting this morning, too. It doesn’t seem worse than yesterday, but it’s not much better.

Off to work!

 

Are you a crunchy or smooth person?

I’ll eat either, but we usually buy the SUPER chunky pb and crunchy almond butter.

    I always forget to try oatbran..I’m a diehard rolled oats lover, but I need branch out!

    I like both, but I always buy smooth. I feel like you get more nut butter in a spoonful :)

  9. Crunchy crunchy crunchy! I LOVE it so…! Although – really – I’ll eat nut butters in any form…! Your breakfast reminds me I need to dig out the oatbran too…

  10. I love crunchy almond butter (I can’t eat PB).

    Have a great day!

  11. Crunchy definitely :-)

  12. I’m a weirdo when it comes to PB. I like crunchy for sandwiches, but smooth for cooking and oats. And natural is my favorite by far!

  13. i love the name of your blog.

    and crunchy, of course.

  14. SMOOOOTH. PB&CO preferred. ;)

  17. I like to mix it up :)

  18. Smooth nut butter, definitely! Love the chocolate chips too :)

  19. I like smooth peanut butter and crunchy almond butter.. so I could I should say both. We had beautiful weather here too, let’s hope it stays that way.

  20. I love smooth! That’s the only way a lot of flavored nut butters come anyway

  21. I keep forgetting I have oatbran too. I’m def. a chunky person (hah). I also have a new found love for raw almond butter

  22. I’m about to ask what is probably a dumb question, BUT can you microwave oatbran?

  23. Crunchy all the way. I love Raw Crunch Almond Butter from TJ’s.

  24. Your oat bran looks great. Do you cook it stovetop or microwave?

    I actually love both types of nut butter for different applications – smooth in my oats and shakes and crunchy on sandwiches or wasa crackers.

    • I usually cook it in the microwave – it’s easier for me to not have to watch the stove while I’m trying to get ready in the morning!

  25. I almost bought some oatbran this weekend, but I have two containers of regular oats I need to eat up.

    Sorry about your sore throat!

  26. crunchy all the way :)

  27. Awesome bowl of yummy oats. I am def going to add some choco chips to my oats on one of those special kind of days.
    I am most def a chunky person!!!!! No doubt!

  28. I’m all about the crunchy….
