Hannah and I love eating oatmeal for breakfast and making it from scratch is really easy. Sometimes I use the quick-cooking oats, but I prefer the texture of the old fashioned oats. I'm always trying out new flavour combos, and yes, some are better than others, ha ha. This combo of PB & date was a big hit - Hannah was shovelling it into her mouth with both hands :) I really liked it too - the peanut butter made it nice and creamy and the little bits of date were sweet. Yummy! Like most of my breakfasts I enjoyed this oatmeal with a scoop of yogurt on top.
Peanut Butter & Date Oatmeal
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 3/4 cups old fashioned oats
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 heaping tsp peanut butter
- 2/3 cup medjool dates, chopped
Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the oats, vanilla, peanut butter and dates and stir. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.
