Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal (High Protein and Omega 3)

Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal (High Protein and Omega 3)

Hello! If you want a breakfast that will take you less than 10 minutes to make and that will keep you full for hours this oatmeal is great for you. It is high in protein, fiber and omega 3s and high in antioxidants if you chose a homemade berry jam. I used my homemade berry and apple jam (which I will post once I perfect it) but you can definitely add whatever jam you have.

You can also prepare this oatmeal in bigger batches (by using double the ingredients) and have it ready for two or three days in the fridge. I also used the Trader Joe’s Hemp Protein which I really like because it is lightly sweetened with coconut sugar so it doesn’t overwhelmingly sweeten anything you add it on. If you like your oats more sweet you can add some sweetener of your choice. I feel like the mashed banana and protein powder sweeten it enough though.  So try it and let me know how you like it! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quick cook oats
  • 1 tbsp flaxmeal
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 scoop Trader Joes Organic Hemp Protein
  • 2 cups water or vegan milk
  • half a banana (mashed)
  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 2,3 drops vanilla extract

toppings:

  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions:

  • Put your oats, flax meal, chia seeds and water in a small saucepan and put on medium high heat
  • Add the salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract and continue stirring until your oats start to thicken (for about 2 minutes)
  • Add your mashed banana, peanut butter and any sweetener (if you use), stir until everything is well incorporated and lower heat
  • Remove from heat and let stand for a minute
  • Transfer in a bowl and add your toppings
