The New Peanut Butter and Jelly

December 11, 2010

Another go with the chocolate oats.

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1.5T homemade Scottish oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 1t ground flax
  • 1t cocoa powder

Topped with:

  • pumpkin granola
  • peanut butter
  • 1/2 a banana

Yes, I’m still loving this bowl.  Both because it’s Christmas-y and because it’s smaller than my regular bowls and makes me feel like I have more oatmeal.

If you’re going to make chocolate oats I definitely recommend adding sugar, honey or maple syrup.  The cocoa kind of mutes the sweetness of the milk.

I drank coffee with my oats this morning and was seriously sweating.  It was gross.  Never again!

Then I made lunch.  It’d been a while since I made a sandwich (or it felt like it anyways) and I decided it was time.

What to do when you’ve already had enough peanut butter via morning oats?  Make a jelly and goat cheese sandwich!

And throw some spinach in for fun.

Pretend you want to see some more bread pictures.

When I got home I enjoyed a green monster in the dwindling daylight.

Then I stretched (in an attempt to avoid ITBS-related knee pain) and ran 3 miles to decompress. 

In the past two days, I turned in two papers and a journal consisting of a written page for every class and every reading we did and gave a presentation.  I needed a good run.

I’m spending the ENTIRE day studing for my 7:30 PM final.  Yes, University of Colorado has finals on Saturday.  It’s unfair if you ask me.

Hope you’re doing something more fun with your Saturday!

    I do that with bowls too. I like using the smaller ones and having them full. 🙂

    730p on a Sat? That’s just mean. At Northwestern we had finals that would start at 8p and be 3 hours. I’m a morning person so my brain was totally not working at that time of night! Good luck!

    Hmm. Well. That sandwich certainly sounds unique. Thing is, I’m sure it tasted pretty good because the oddest combination of foods usually do!

    Tomorrow I’m trying your chocolate oats. 😀
