    Clever idea! I totally love oatmeal too. I’m a creature of habit, so I ate old fashioned oats with freshly ground flax seed, raisins and a bit of butter and pure maple syrup for breakfast for at least 5 years. 🙂 It’s funny though….one day I woke up and decided “no oatmeal” and have now been going the protein route ever since. Mostly omelettes which you’ll see I have a variety on my blog. LOL! Have a GREAT Monday!

    I eat oatmeal almost every morning. This is a fun way to change up my usual oatmeal recipe.

    Yummy! I can’t wait to try this out 😀

    Looks yummy! I love Coach’s Oats in all sorts of variations. I never put any sweetener in it, though. It doesn’t need it.

    This is FAB! I couldn’t have the pumpkin pie oatmeal due to allergies, but this one I can dig into! Like you – I love oatmeal in the mornings…I started enjoying it about 3 months ago and it’s delish!

  13. 13

    Love that you use Coaches oats! They are our favorite. My family likes peanut butter mixed in and topped with chocolate chips or topped with raspberries and chocolate chips. Can you tell I have teenagers? 🙂

  14. 14

    I love, love, love oatmeal! Sometimes I put a little peanut butter in mine, but I’ve never tried it with jelly too. Good idea Leslie!

    Brilliant. My daughter is a PB and J hound, she’ll LOVE this!

      Thanks Lindsey..
      That bowl?? Oh my….I actually got it at Michaels Crafts for $1 last Christmas. If you look at it from above it is in the shape of a Christmas ornament! I got a few in red and white. They do look pretty in photos.

    Absolutely love peanut butter in my oatmeal….we buy our oatmeal from the farmer’s market and it’s so much better than what grocery stores sell.

    THanks for your rice pudding recipe from 2008.
