Ingredients

    Bob's Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Extra Thick Rolled Oats, 0.5 cup
    Water, Filtered, 1 cup
    Peanut Butter, smooth style, 1 tbsp
    Mixed frozen berries, 1/2 cup (Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, and Blackberries
    Honey, 1 tbsp

Directions

1) Mix the 1/2 cup of Bob's Red Mill Oats (or other rolled oat brands) and 1 cup of filtered water in a bowl.

Make sure to use a bowl that is tall enough to hold the oats it rises in the microwave - roughly a 2 cup bowl.

2) Microwave the oats and water on high for 3 -5 minutes. The oats will become softer and mushier the longer you make them, so adjust for your preferred consistency.

3) When cooked to preferred consistency, add the 1/2 cup of frozen berries and heat for 1 minute on high in the microwave.

4) Remove from the microwave and add 1 Tbsp of peanut butter and 1 Tbsp of honey.

5) Stir everything together and let the oats cool for a minute or two.

Makes 1 serving at 430 calories. Enjoy!

Alternatives:
Any type of fresh berries can be substituted for frozen by adding 1 minute of cook time to step 2 and skipping step 3. Add the berries to the oats in step 4.

Use almond or other nut butters. This is really good with homemade varieties!

Steel cut and instant oatmeal can be used, just follow the producers cooking instructions instead of using the cook times in step 2.

Tap water may be used, but the filtered water tastes better.

Milk may be added for taste, if preferred. Reduce the water in step 1 to no less than 3/4 cup, and add desired milk at the end - preferably warmed. (Microwaving milk will reduce its nutrient value). Be sure to add the appropriate calories to the meal! (approx, 90 for skim, 110 for 1%, 120 for 2%, and 150 for whole).
