Apple Peanut Butter Nut Oats
No bananas. No pumpkin. No berries. It was finally time to do another batch of apple oatmeal! My mom only had quick oats, so I had to use those as well. They are actually quite doughy in flavor – maybe I’ll have them from time to time. But NO WHERE close to as creamy as my normal rolled oat mixtures (made with Quaker Old Fashioned vs. the Quaker 1-minute quick oats today)
In my bowl:
- 1 small/medium apple, chopped
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 cup wheatberries
- Sprinkle of almonds/walnuts (appx. 1.5 tbsp)
- Spoonful of PB (appx. 2/3 a tbsp)
Forgot the vanilla and cinnamon! This apple version was VERY filling!!
Luckily my mom had Smuckers All-Natural on hand. My dad just bought it for her but said she had to finish the JIFF before she could switch over. Well I snuck in and opened the Smuckers anyways – shhhhh! I liked the flavor a lot.
This beautiful bowl is handmade by local potter Mark Latta. I love the shape (which is hard to see, but it’s not all the way round – almost slightly layered and cylindrical?), and I love the earth tones. I was gushing over it at breakfast, and my mom said she ordered me one for my birthday – too bad I have to wait until October to get it!
With white tea. No, I didn’t eat on the porch, but the photography was better out in the sunlight 🙂
Failed Gym Trip
My mom and I were at the gym at 6:55, but no one else was!! Turns out it doesn’t open until 8:00 on Saturdays. So we went home and went out to exercise on foot (I was hoping to not run today that’s my only option in Baltimore). I did about 4 miles weaving all through the town while my mom walked. I circled back to her a few times to say hello. The sunshine was absolutely gorgeous!
To the airport I go!
