While visions of cookie dough rolls danced in my head, I slept like a solid rock last night.
Which didn’t make getting up to my alarm (I hit snooze 3 times) any easier this morning!
What did brighten my 60 degree, foggy, cloudy, and slightly misty (really SF? really?) morning?
Oats In A Jar
Step 1: Eat a jar of Peanut Butter (over time… or all at once. There are no judgements here).
Step 2: Save said empty jar of PB.
Step 3: Cook oats like you normally would (we used SteelCut oats and made a huge batch, the long and slow way (boiling/simmering for 25 minutes) and added some brown sugar, honey and a bit of butter to flavor.
Step 4: Put oats in empty PB jar – let sit overnight in refrigerator (I waited for them to cool down since I have an intense phobia to putting hot things in plastic… (all kinds of thoughts of it melting the plastic and me eating it happen)
Step 5: Top with fruit and/or granola, etc(I topped mine with a Banana) and enjoy!
Step 6: Scrape the PB jar clean until nothing remains. (Optional step that I obviously took full advantage of. The picture below is before I really got creative in getting every single morsel of PB out of that darn jar. Multiple utensils were involved.)
A (free!) sugar-free vanilla (1 pump) nonfat latte from Peet’s went alongside the oats.
Somehow my mom gets hooked up with these little beauties every time she goes into Peets… and then passes them on to her loving, living-on-a-budget daughter. Thanks Mom!
Now that all of that caffeine and peanut butter has been consumed, it’s time to get some work done!
Hope you have a great Wednesday! (We’re half-way there!)
