- Chunky Peanut Butter (with Salt) (1.0 tbsps)
Try this inexpensive, easy and sooo good for breakfast! The complexity of the carbs from the oats and the good fats and protein from the peanut butter are the perfect duo to power you for the entire the day.
- Using a small pot, add water and slowly boil it.
(A slow boil is achieved when bubbles appear across the entire surface of the water. Water bubbles should be generally large and slow moving without giving off steam. A slow boil is at 205 degrees Fahrenheit.)
- Add in the oats to the water giving it a good stir. Allow the oats to cook for 5 minutes until they become soft or slightly fluffy. Always remember to stir the water and oats.
- You can also pop the water into the microwave. In a microwave-safe bowl, stir together the oats and water and let them cook for 3 minutes on the high setting. Remember to stir the water and oat mixture every 30 seconds until the oatmeal is fully cooked and all the water is absorbed.
- In a serving bowl, scoop spoonful of the oatmeal mixture and peanut butter. Use a knife to stir/swirl mixture to make this dish very appealing to the eyes. Garnish desired and serve.
- 550 peanuts – the amount of peanuts enough to make a 12 ounce jar of peanut butter. Peanuts have more antioxidants than grapes, green tea, broccoli, and spinach. Peanut butter is also a good source of vitamins B3 and E, magnesium, folate, protein and dietary fiber. Look for the natural or traditional style peanut butter with no trans-fat (hydrogenated oils), no added fat or sugar. Store your jar of natural peanut butter upside down. This will allow the oil to rise to the bottom of the jar, making it easier to stir when you open it. Use a knife or spatula to stir it.
