Yesterday, when I was getting my smoothie ingredients out, I had 2 choices:
– Use the last of a jar of almond butter
– Use 1 Tbsp of my NEW almond butter
That was not a hard decision – that little discovery gave me breakfast today!
I had a little over 1 Tbsp of almond butter left in this jar, so I kept the rest of my breakfast simple.
- 1/3 cup oatbran, 1 cup water, BIG pinch sea salt
- 1/2 banana, sliced
Yum. That extra big pinch of sea salt made this jar of oats. Since the almond butter itself was unsalted, I knew I would need a little more than normal to balance out the sweetness of the banana.
I also scooped out a little of the almond butter for the top before filling the jar – now I’ve got almond butter on both sides!
Even though it’s still chilly here, I had natural light this morning to take my pictures outside! Come on, Spring – finish melting that snow in my yard and let’s get on with it.
One of my favorite things about Oats in a Jar (OIAJ)?
They easily become Oats in a Car (OIAC)…I’m running late, so I’m taking this breakfast with me ;) Don’t worry – Nick drives, so I just get to sit, eat, and listen to K92.
Do you have any fun weekend plans?
