Oats & Peanut Butter
OATS & PB Breakfast
Quaker Old Fashioned Oats - 1/4 cup
Milk (1 %) - 1/2 cup
Brown Sugar - 1 tsp
Peanut butter - 1/2 tbsp to 1 tbsp [I use half]
1) Soak Oats in some hot milk for about 10 minutes. Then microwave it in 1 minute intervals (so it doesn't boil over) for a total of 3 minutes. Adding brown sugar after the initial 2 minutes. I find that it's not too gooey and has a slight bite to it at this point - which is how I like it.
2) When done, stir in the peanut butter.
For a yummy variation: Add Nutella instead of peanut butter for a chocolatey breakfast treat.
1) Heat a non-stick pan and spray some oil, beat 1 egg and 1 tbsp of milk with some salt and pepper. Scramble on a low to medium flame to desire consistency. I like them well cooked and topped mine with some hot sauce.
Serve with fruit of choice.
