This week I wanted to share with you my favorite breakfast.
I am all about keeping things easy. Weekday breakfast is a challenge for me, as I’m sure it is for many of you too. Getting up early, frantically making lunches, and packing backpacks. Hoping that I don’t have make-up smudges under my eyes as I fly out the door to get the kids to school before the tardy bell. By the time I get back from that it’s time to gear up for work. By 8:30 a.m. I’m already tired. I’m sure many of you can relate.
So when it comes to breakfast, it has to be fast, tasty and of course healthy!
My favorite start to the day, these days, is oatmeal. But, not just any oatmeal. I have come up with the perfect oatmeal.
Ok, I understand you may think I am severely exaggerating when I say perfect, but for me it is! I could eat it for all three meals of the day.
I’ll share with you my secret. Alright, it’s not really a secret. Just the perfect combination of ingredients to give you a yummy and clean start to your day! Here is my version of healthy Peanut Butter Honey Oatmeal.
- 1 serving of oatmeal (whatever your preference, I just go for the old fashioned quick cook oats)
- 1 TBSP All Natural Peanut Butter (I prefer Kirkland's all natural chunky)
- 1 big handfull of fresh blueberries (Any other fresh fruit would work too. I also love dried cranberries)
- 1TBSP Honey
- Cinnamon to taste
- Prepare your oatmeal according to package directions. Stir peanut butter and blueberries into your oatmeal. Drizzle honey over top. Sprinkle with cinnamon to taste (I like a lot of cinnamon) That's it! A yummy, hearty and clean breakfast that will start your day off right!
