Microwave Peanut Butter Oatmeal


To me, fall and winter will always be oatmeal seasons.

It just feels good to wake up in the morning with a bowl of hot oatmeal and a steaming mug of tea. It's always the small things that make a huge difference in my day. A good breakfast. A neon yellow scarf. A seat on the metro. These are some of the things that brighten my morning, and keep me happy throughout the day.

And maybe one of the most important things that make my day a whole lot better and brighter is sleeping in. Even for just a little bit longer. I deserve it, don't I? My days are long enough as it is!

So what do you do for breakfast on a sleepy weekday morning? Well my friends, this oatmeal is the recipe for you.

While I am pretty obsessed with my Coconut, cranberry and pumpkin seed banana microwave oatmeal right now, this one comes in a close second. Or when I don't have a ripe banana on hand. Which is pretty often.

I have made this oatmeal SO many times over the past couple of weeks because it is just too freaking easy. Also, PEANUT BUTTER! Am I right?

On a side note, I have this weird thing where I cannot STAND the smell of wet peanut butter. Everyone thought I was crazy, and just imagining weird smells, or trying to get out of doing the dishes. It wasn't until I told my boyfriend about it that he admitted that he knew what I was talking about. It must be love! Please, someone tell me that we are not crazy!

But back to this oatmeal. This was so fast to make that I could make it, take some pictures, and head out the door without being late for work! Now how's that for a perfect morning!

  3. Ah yes, it's always the small things! Even the small things like being able to use my favourite mug in the morning/eating my (peanut butter) oats with my fav spoon = enough to make my morning :D It's a placebo effect of comfort, I guess! Love this x

    Thanks for an amazing recipe! I just got a couple of packs of pre-mixed oatmeal, but after I have had my wicked way with those, I'll know where to look next for oatspiration :D x
