my favorite snack . . . for breakfast.

One of my all-time most favorite snacks EVER is an apple with peanut butter. Don't get me wrong -- I love summer's produce, but when apples are BACK in the fall, I get excited!! I crack open a new jar of no-stir, and spread away. Mmmmmm.

I decided to get a little bit creative with my breakfast this morning. Apple-cinnamon oatmeal is one of my most favorite things in the world . . . and I see people stirring nut butters into their oatmeal on a daily basis on many blogs . . . what about peanut-butter-apple oatmeal, I thought? I gave it a try:
HOLY HECK, this has been one of the best breakfasts ever! Rich and creamy from the almond milk and peanut butter, but with little bursts of tart apple throughout. Directions:
1. Combine 1 cup almond milk and 1 small apple, chopped, in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
2. Stir in 1/2 cup rolled oats. Lower the heat and cook 5 to 8 minutes, until most of the milk has been absorbed, or until you reach your favorite thickness.
3. Stir in 1 small spoonfull of brown sugar and 1 spoonfull of peanut butter.


(It's almost Friday!! Woo! And it's grocery night for me, too!)

As soon as I buy peanut butter, I sit down with it and a couple apples. Delicious! I never thought of adding it to oatmeal but it sounds perfect!

This is one of my favorites too! I like oatmeal for a bedtime snack.
