Peanuts and toffee and crunch – oh my!
I woke up a little dehydrated today, but nothing a few chugs of water couldn’t fix. I am so glad I wasn’t feeling the drudges of alcohol
We started the relaxing morning with coffee and oats. I can’t believe it’s a Friday because it sure feels like Saturday!
- 1/3 cup oats, soy milk, water, 1 medium ripe banana, 1 tbsp raisins, pinch salt
- 1/4 cup Kashi Crunch Honey Almond Flax
- 1/2 tbsp toffee pieces
- 1/2 tbsp butterscotch chips
- Spoonful Smucker’s Natural (salty to contrast the sweet)
Much better than yesterday ….
I am sprinting out the door as we speak – I’ve got the urge to run because I saw the SUN for the first time in 3 days peek out of the clouds!!!
WOW Kath – This oatmeal looks amazing!!
Does Barney Butter need stirred because of oil separation or is it a no-stir nut butter? Thanks!
Have a great run, Kath! We had an ice storm here last night and it’s freezin’!! All schools are closed and it’s a winter wonderland out there. Send me some sun! 😉
Yummmmmmmmy oats, girl. Holy moly. My bowl was just oats with sliced nana today… I’m jealous.
HOLY FREAKING GOODNESS!!! What a bowl of oats.
Enjoy the sun for me!!

Hope you had a good run in the sunshine. Those gooey butterscotch chips look so good. Once again, lovely morning bowl!
Wow that sounds incredible! A too decadent for breakfast for me… although I love all your sweet combos… maybe I’ll make a mini portion for dessert some time, yum! 🙂

So this morning I was driving to work and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman” came on the radio…well..when the song got to “Comfort and Joy” all I could think about was “Comfoat and Joy!”

I know what you mean-it feels like a Saturday to me too!! I have a snow day from work and we leave for our trip tomorrow, which means a week off work! yawhoo!
your so creative with your oats. I love it.
this is possibly the most delicious bowl of oats you’ve made to date.. i’ve got to try this combo myself!
Oooh- I have half a bag of butterscotch chips in my pantry and didn’t know what to do with them. Problem solved 🙂
Have a great run!
Your oats sound amazing!
Have a great run and enjoy the sun!

You are really outdoing yourself with these oatmeal combos lately!
The sun peaked out here for maybe 2 minutes, right after it snowed + rained!!! Crazy weather!
Your oats just get better and better Kath!
Have a good run 🙂
That oatmeal looks so good… I’m totally making it tomorrow!
There is drool on my keyboard. Mmmmmm that looks so yummy. You really do have the BEST oatmeal combos!

Your oats look amazing.
I lve in central NY state and it is snowing at the rate of almost an inch an hour.
Hope you had a good run.

Delicious looking oats!
Your oats look delicious. I cooked mine stove top for the first time today. The grew in volume! It seem like so much and were very fluffy and yummy.
OH MAN! That sounds AMAZING!
That sounds like a party in the mouth!
Run it out, girl. Aren’t those urges THE BEST? It’s cloudy skies here… not too fun 🙁
Another good oatmeal combo to add to the list!
Wow, you cease to amaze me girl! Rocking out those bowls these days!
seelee live (for the love of peanut butter) says
Oats look fantastic! Such a fun and unbelievable yummy idea! I love how you eat this real food and can turn it healthy. Inspiration for all of us!
mm that oatmeal look ssoo good! i always have brown sugar oatmean.. how boring!
i discovered your blog a few weeks ago and have continuously been tempted to make an oatmeal creation myself… but i never eat oatmeal, so i never tried!
but today, for lunch (not breakfast!) i decided to try. i used bananas, nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and some natural pb… and wow.
now i understand! there will be much more where that came from!
I was wondering if you aimed to drink a certain amount of water everyday, you never really take pictures of water in the winter and I didn’t know if you just didn’t take pictures of it when you drank water. I have a hard time staying hydrated so I was curious.
It’s a no-stir kind.
No, I am not the best about water. I do try to drink at least 24 oz during my workout so that will be guaranteed hydration but on days when I run or don’t workout, I do miss out on that. In the winter I drink a ton of hot tea (probably 2-3 cups per day) that I don’t always put on the blog because it’s just plain tea in water. That certainly does count towards hydration. Everything I have read just recommends drinking when you’re thirsty and that should be sufficient, and that aiming for a certain number of cups or liters a day is overrated.
Your breakfast looks so good. I want to go out and buy some of those toffee pieces now!
Awesome. Toffee is soo good.
Do you measure out 1/3c of oats dry beforehand or is that cooked?
That’s dry oats. I have a little 1/3 cup scoop that I use for equal parts oats, milk + water.
Yum! Butterscotch chips sound like the perfect oatmeal add-in.
ooooo. I want this. I’d like to link to this if that’s ok! ?
