Oats in a Jar

I finally did something more productive than making coffee today – about two hours after waking up I finally made breakfast. Today’s breakfast was amazing, oats in an almond butter jar! 🙂

So, if you read food blogs, you might have heard about oats in a jar. But if you haven’t here is the deal. When you get to the near bottom of a nut butter jar, make a bit of oatmeal on the stove top, once it’s cooked put it in the jar, it melts the remaining nut butter and adds an amazing flavor to your oatmeal. It is one of the best breakfasts out there – I love it.

In the oats this morning:

Just over 1/4 cup of oats, skim milk and water

1 t ground flax

1 t chia seeds

sprinkle of cinnamon

dash of vanilla

small handful of raisins

1 T protein powder

Once the oatmeal was cooked, I spooned it into the jar of almond butter and enjoyed.



Let the lazy, rainy Saturday commence.
