Peanut Butter and Jam Stovetop Oatmeal

Peanut Butter and Jam Stovetop Oatmeal will bring you child-like glee! Delicious PB&J taste in the adult vehicle of an oatmeal bowl.

Last week I waxed on about the perfect pairing of peanut butter and banana. Now let’s obsess about peanut butter’s other match made in heaven: JAM.

Peanut butter and jam is a classic pairing. PB&J sandwiches have been stuffed into kids lunch boxes since the beginning of time. It’s one of those classic combinations that is the perfect combination of sweet, salty, creamy, with a hint of peanutty crunch, and is just overall YUMS.

Peanut butter and jam isn’t just a great sandwich – it makes a fun oatmeal! Like eating a sandwich with a spoon! …Is that weird?

Stovetop oatmeal is mixed with two generous scoops of peanut butter, then served warm with a drizzle of your favourite jam, and garnished with fresh fruit and chopped peanuts.

I eat so many Overnight Oats, that this Peanut Butter and Jam Stovetop Oatmeal is such a tasty change! I used homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Jam to drizzle on top (and garnished with raspberries instead – is that a faux pas?!)

Give this recipe a try! Your kids will love it.

It’s Peanut Butter Jelly time!
