Our Amazing Oatmeal Recipe!

Our Amazing Oatmeal Recipe!

I’ll start this post by saying that I’ve never been an oatmeal person. I’ve eaten it on and off throughout my childhood, but I didn’t truly enjoy it. It was just something that my mom put in front of me and that I put in my belly. As an adult, I had pretty much left oatmeal behind. For the most part, I wasn’t really eating breakfast at all. Even then, I was eating some kind of cereal bar with a cup of coffee, and that was it.

It wasn’t until I started on my health kick that I took breakfast more seriously. Even then, I focused more on eggs for the first couple of years. I kept reading in all of these diet and fitness plans that people should eat steel cut oatmeal in the morning. “Oatmeal?” I thought, “no thanks…”. This went on for another year or so until I finally broke down and decided to give it a try. Plain oatmeal was…okay…I guess. But then I found an oatmeal recipe from a fitness website that I really dug. and when I tried it, it was AWESOME! I made it for myself for a while, since Will didn’t really eat breakfast at the time, but then he tried a bite of mine one day and really liked it. So now I make it for both of us!

It’s an easy recipe. First thing you need to so is get steel cut oatmeal and prepare it according to the instructions. Steel cut oatmeal isn’t like regular oatmeal, and takes a lot longer to make, but supposedly that’s what makes it good for you or something. I dunno. Science.

Once you’re done with that, stir in the following ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of all natural peanut butter
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon
  • A sprinkle of nutmeg
  • A light drizzle of organic, unfiltered honey

Mix it all together, and there you have it! A breakfast food with a good amount of protein, good fats, and soluble fiber. For Will, that’s the whole breakfast. For me, since I’m trying to put on some mass, I eat it with three eggs and a glass of almond milk. It all depends on what your diet and exercise needs are.

Enjoy!

    Sounds tasty 🙂 I’d probably would toss in a few raisins in mine.

  2. I used to not like oatmeal that much, but than I tried this, and it is AMAZING!!!!!

  3. Was just going to go hunting back through the videos to find where you mentioned briefly how to make this and then this appeared! So excited to try it! Thanks for posting 🙂

  4. I like to add Flax meal, and protein powder, It sticks with you until lunch without any hunger pangs…The flax meal adds some texture to the nutty flavor. And top it off with a few raisins.
