Peanut Butter Cookie Oatmeal

To transition myself from the Christmas cookie coma that I have been in for the past week or so and back into my healthy lifestyle.. I started this morning off with this.  It is a bit heavier on the yellow (carbs) than I normally go for this early in the day..  but this was something that could get me excited to get back at it this morning..

Ok so here it is.. super easy.

I only made 1 serving for me, but this could easily be increased..

Prepare 1 serving of Oatmeal according to package directions.  I use the traditional Quaker Oats, nothing special.

As the oatmeal is nearly done.. add

*agave nectar or a teaspoon or so of sugar
*1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
*2 teaspoons of peanut butter (more or less)
*a dash of salt

All of these measurements are guesstimates..  adjust according to your taste.

You can also add in a tad bit of butter, but I skipped it this morning.

And that's it guys!  Super easy and tasty..   The perfect breakfast to welcome my wayward self back to the lifestyle I strive for..

let me know what you think!
