Mmmm, Oatmeal.

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.


  1. First of all...that actually sounds amazing.

    Second, COCONUT LACK ICED TEA? Where do I buy that?

  2. Teavanna. Be prepared to pay our your ears for it... or wait for Steve's mom to give it to you. :) I bet you could make your own with loose black tea and just toss some coconut in there.
