Introduction

Just like a PB&J sandwich, this recipe can always be made with basic pantry staples. I like strawberry jam, but feel free to use grape jelly or even orange marmalade if thatís your favorite. You can even get wacky and use almond or cashew butter in place of the peanut butter. Just like a PB&J sandwich, this recipe can always be made with basic pantry staples.

Directions

The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean-up later. Add oats and milk. Cook on low overnight (7 to 9 hours).

In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top, but if stirred, it should become a more uniform consistency. Mix in peanut butter and jam.

    I use PB2 peanut butter (2TBSP.- 45 calories), Target carries this product and sugar free jam instead to save calories. - 3/3/15
