I, like Jessi, have a thing for oatmeal. It's been unseasonably crisp and cool here lately and, to be honest, we were running low on all forms of breakfast groceries. I remembered this recipe I had seen over on Peas and Thank You and wanted to give it a whirl.
- 1/4 cup of Trader Joe's steel cut oats
- 3/4 cup of milk
Microwave that for 2 minutes, stopping to stir once. Use a tall bowl, here, or you'll make a mess. Like I did. After two minutes, microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the oatmeal is nice and soft. Once it's cooked, add
- 1 t. baking cocoa
- 1 T. peanut butter
- 1 T. agave nectar
- 1/2 frozen banana
As usual, measurements are not exact.
Oatmeal, coffee, and the New York Times online. That's my kind of weekday morning.
*Note: coupled with some coconut black iced tea, it's also a fab post-run breakfast on a Sunday. As I'm presently discovering.
