Quick Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Recipe
Preparation time: 15 minutes
190ml (6.5 fl oz) low-fat milk
60g (2 oz) rolled oats
40g (1.5 oz) frozen raspberries
1 scoop protein powder (optional)
60g (2 oz) strawberries
1tsp peanut butter
10g (⅓ oz) pistachio nuts
1tsp flaked almonds
1. In a small saucepan, bring the milk and 125ml (4 ¼ fl oz) water to the boil over high heat. Add the oats and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.
2. Add the frozen raspberries and protein powder, if using, and cook for a further 4-5 minutes or until the fruit has broken down and cooked through. If the mixture is too thick, add 1 tbsp water at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
3. To serve, pour the cooked oats into a serving bowl and top with the strawberries, peanut butter, pistachios and flaked almonds. Enjoy!
