Mushy PB&J: The Obsession Continues

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m obsessed with PB&J.  However, I’m also quite bad at planning ahead with my grocery shopping and I often run out of bread unexpectedly.  That’s why I was totally inspired when I read this quote from Ginnifer Goodwin in Health Magazine:

“Jeanne Tripplehorn taught me—and this is the most amazing thing in the world—make some instant oatmeal*, and put a tiny spoonful of peanut butter and a tiny spoonful of jelly in it, and mush it all up. It is like a mushy peanut butter–and-jelly. It’s genius. And it’s very satiating.”

And a few days later, I made this [with slow cooked oatmeal for greater energy benefits]:

add peanut butter & jelly to taste, enjoy.

Confession: I definitely put more than a tiny spoonful, but it was definitely delicious.

*Just be careful of your instant oatmeal, I’ve found that some of my favorites contain hidden dairy ingredients and have had to switch. However, there are plenty that are vegan-friendly out there so find one and eat up!

  1. That’s my standard oatmeal! And I also use more than a tiny spoon 😉 I love nut butter, lately it’s been almond butter that I use, and this is one of the most oatmeals I’ve found. The extra protein from the almond butter keeps me feeling full a lot longer.

    • Krista,
      I too love nut butters! I actually have yet to try the recipe with almond butter, but there’s a jar in my kitchen just begging to be used the moment I run out of peanut. 🙂
