Oats In A Jar!!
Now I've seen oats in a jar over all the blogs however I've never experienced the joy. I eat breakfast at work and lots of time I sleep through breakfast on the weekends (eek I know I should eat breakfast). But this lovely (aka cold and gray) Sunday morning, I had to take the family to the airport and I needed some fuel if I wanted to drive to the airport and then do some kickboxing and weight lifting. I also had a nearly empty jar of Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams from baking on Friday. I made peanut butter banana cookies ala Fat Free Vegan, I used all whole wheat pastry flour, Dark Chocolate Dreams PB, and no chocolate chips. Sorry no pictures but the cookies turned out yummy and very banana in flavor (which I love...makes me feel healthier for eating cookies).
Anyways, so I saved my nearly empty jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams (which I plan on buying more of immediately) and whipped up 1/2 cup of oats with a medium/large banana to toss inside my jar. After cooling for a few minutes, I risked burning my mouth and dove into my oats. YUM! Why had I waited so long to do this??? If you have a nearly empty jar of PB, save it for your oats :) I'm so tempted to buy PB and empty the jar into Tupperware so I can have oats in a jar again tomorrow. Or maybe this is just an incentive to eat more peanut butter...
Have you tried oats in a jar? And what's your favorite nut butter? I think I finally found mine :)
