Peanut butter and jelly oatmeal

Well I’m getting married in 2 weeks! So because of this I’m freaking out And trying to shed a bit of weight before I do. Yesterday’s food was pretty boring but I’m off today so I can take my time cooking and making sure my diet food tastes good! Breakfast today PB&J oatmeal. It’s super creamy and no milk at all in it. Keep the calories low since there’s PB in it.

peanut butter and jelly oatmeal

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4-1/2 cup water
1/2 banana
2 T peanut butter
2 T puréed berry of choice or preserves

In a microwave safe glass, mug, or bowl melt banana and add to oats water and preserves or purée. Mix together and cook in microwave for about a minute or until all water is absorbed into oats. Mix again. The banana will make the oatmeal creamy and thick.

Enjoy!

Peanut butter cup oatmeal

I woke up and had no idea what I wanted to eat the other day. I just started a second job and now I am not coming home until after 10 at night so if I’m going to have a good meal it’s gotta be in the morning and fast. I’ve been making bulk food at nights to take with me for dinner at work… And hope it tastes good reheated. So here was a great oatmeal that I literally came up in 5 minutes and it was yummy!

1 1/2 servings oatmeal
2 T peanut butter
1 large handful chocolate chips melted plus some for garnish
If want sweeter 2 tsp sugar or to taste
Enough almond milk to coat oats

Microwave oats 1 minute and add chocolate chips and peanut butter and sugar if you are adding it and combine. Microwave another 30 seconds. Stir to combine and add extra chocolate chips to make it pretty 🙂

This kept me full all day. And great if you have a little sweet tooth. I’m all about protein and sweets in the morning 🙂

Not the prettiest picture in the world but I didn’t want to have to wash 2 bowls at 6 in the morning.

Apple Cinnamon Bread

What in this world is more refreshing than an apple? It’s naturally sweet, juicy, and is actually filling. Better than candy I say! I was up late last night and couldn’t sleep so I decided I was going to make breakfast for myself and my girls at work. I have become famous for midnight baking lately… Good and bad thing I guess. All I can say about this delicious! Spoon licking good!

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup of agave
1 T sugar or sweetener
1 1/2 cups apple (or more)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 T banana extract
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a loaf pan (smaller one). Mix dry ingredients well and in a magic bullet mix apples and wet ingredients until well combine. Some chunks of apples are good. Mix wet ingredients into dry by hand making sure not to over mix. Transfer mixed dough to loaf pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Wait 10 minutes and cut

Blueberry apple breakfast pizza

I have been on a fruit kick lately. It’s one of few healthy things I can get my daughter to eat…. She has her daddy’s eating habits unfortunately but I’m working on it.

This recipe is basically a blueberry muffin and a pizza or giant cookie in one. I just added things and it somehow came together so well.

1/2 cup of flour (white or whole wheat)
1 tsp baking powder
2T apple sauce (unsweetened)
1 T apple butter
2 T agave
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup (a little less) rice milk. Almond milk would be great too
Cinnamon to taste
Dash of salt
Fruit of choice I did a few hand fulls of blue berries.

Grease a pie plate, pizza pan, or a cake pan with removable sides. In an ingested oven place evenly distributed pan in oven and set heat to 420. Cook as the oven preheats for 12 minutes or just until a tooth pick comes out clean.
The raw batter was even delicious!

If you like your sugary sweets substitute sugar for agave!

1/2 cup quick cooking oats
Level or slightly less 1/2 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (any nut butter will work nutella would probably be good)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1T agave nectar
(for those who love their sugar 1/4 cup of sugar…. That'd give me a sugar high!)
1 large box of raisins
preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix applesauce and peanut butter very well and then add rest of ingredients. This will be a very moist and sticky batter. Divide into 10-12 cookies and bake for 13-15 minutes.
Cookies will be very soft
I put mine in the fridge over night. Enjoy! They are absolutely scrumptious.
