The World’s Best Oatmeal

img_3e505b79faa7-1

I’ve always been a fan of oatmeal, but college has made me obsessed with it. I think a lot of people don’t like oatmeal because they think of it as plain boring mush. At least that is how my boyfriend thought of it before I introduced him to the way I made oatmeal. It is so good that there have been days when I have had it for two meals. It is simple, healthy, and pretty cheap…the perfect college student meal!

I calculated it out and for me its averages out to $2.50 for a bowl of oatmeal. Not too bad for a quick and healthy meal!

Frozen berries are cheaper and easier to store than fresh and they taste just as great as fresh. I almost like them a better than fresh!

You can leave out the maple syrup or switch the peanut butter out for another type of almond butter, but it won’t be the same. I often tell people that with the berries, peanut butter, and maple syrup that it tastes just like pancakes for me. Except when I am done eating it, I don’t feel loaded with sugar, and I certainly don’t get hungry later.

  • 1/4 quick oats
  • 1/4 oat bran
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup berries (frozen or fresh)

Mix the first four ingredients together and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir in the maple syrup, then top with peanut butter and berries. And enjoy!
