It is already the end of May and I am beginning to wonder if we will ever see warm weather and sunny days in Minnesota. It has not been a nice spring this year at all. We have had snow, rain and gray skies way too much this year.
With that being said a nice bowl of oatmeal is the perfect breakfast these days. It warms you up on these cold gray days and brings a smile to your face. I was looking for recipes when I saw something for peanut butter and jelly oatmeal, it sounded so good that I knew that I had to make it. Peanut butter and oatmeal sounded like a great combination and I like the thought of a little jelly to sweeten up the combination.
This recipe is nice also for the fact that it makes a single serving. I actually made two since our daughter Krista came home for part of the Memorial Day weekend and I knew that she would love it. But as for the guys in the house I knew that they would have no interest in this at all. One does not like oatmeal and the other will not eat peanut butter. So the single serving is perfect.
If you like peanut butter and jelly and oatmeal you will love this morning dish. I have made a few of the baked oatmeal and I have to say that this one is my favorite so far.
