I finally remembered to save the dregs of my peanut butter to make some oatmeal in a jar. Kath always make such delicious looking oatmeal and the peanut butter jar idea is genius! Into my jar went 1/2 cup oatmeal that had been cooked in 1 cup water with a pinch of salt. I added half a melted banana at the end of cooking I used Katie’s famous melted banana trick. And if that wasn’t a dandy enough breakfast, I topped the whole thing with Singing Pig Cherry Pie Butter and some ground flax seed. What a beautiful way to start the day. I’m usually a steel-cut oats in the crock-pot or overnight oats in soy yogurt kind of gal but this will definitely be in my oatmeal repertoire, I just have to remember to not lick the peanut butter jar clean. R. came over while I was eating and blurted out, “Are you eating a whole jar of peanut butter?” He doesn’t always sensor what he asks me even though I am the mother-in-law.
This stuff is some deliciousness in a jar…it’s excellent on warm scones!
