Keeping it interesting while keeping it healthy is always a challenge. Like what's for breakfast... how about eggs? You're sick of eggs? How about some oatmeal? You're tired of oatmeal? Well, have some eggs. Eggs or oatmeal....oatmeal or eggs.... that's been the story of my breakfast life for quite some time.
It hasn't been so terrible. I really love steel cut oats. And I have tried them lots of different ways. I even made up my own recipe that came out really good.
Chunky Monkey Oatmeal (Makes 6 1-cup servings. 5 PointsPlus)
1 cup steel cut oats
1.5 cup water
1.5 cup 2% milk
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 banana, mashed/diced
2 tbsp all natural peanut butter (ingredients should only say "peanuts")
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
Put everything (except the chocolate chips) in a crock pot sprayed with cooking spray. Stir and cook on low for 7 hours. Top each 1 cup serving with 1 tsp chocolate chips. Enjoy!
