Okay, I had grand plans for today but just couldn't pull it together during the week. I couldn't NOT partake in the wonders of community blogging so here goes my morning breakfast. EVERY morning for the past 4 (or so) years I have oatmeal. Before I continue you must know that I have a very small appetite and get full quickly so this doesn't make very much. I always make it in a mug.
1/4 cup quick oats
2 tsp powdered milk
2 tsp ground flax
a ton of cinnamon
a ton of peanut butter (you'd be hard pressed to find someone who likes peanut butter more than me)
Mix all ingredients except PB with boiling water. Use a bit of extra water as the ground flax thickens it up quite a bit. The cinnamon makes it sweet but feel free to add sweetener of your choice. Then take a big honking huge spoonful of peanut butter (whatever your choice) and plop it in the middle and wait 5 minutes. Gooey melted peanut butter and oats. I still look forward to it every single morning. Once I added a handful of chocolate chips. Okay maybe more than once.
Ritually its about 25g carbs. It NEVER EVER EVER spikes my blood sugar. EVER.
I love to cook and photograph so I promise next time I'll get my shit in gear.
Today, however, I may have just found my new favourite breakfast thanks to Jen at La Dolce Vita.
