P B and J Oatmeal

P B and J Oatmeal

  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 ½ cups raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup steel-cut oatmeal
  • Salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • ½ cup unflavored or vanilla whey protein powder
  • ¼ cup natural peanut or almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. In a bowl, mix together chia seeds and 1 cup water. Let sit for about 45 minutes to form a gel, stirring occasionally to prevent clumping. Pulse together chia gel with raspberries and honey in a blender or food processor. Chill overnight.
  2. Place oats, a pinch of salt, and 3 cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a mild boil, immediately turn off the heat, cover, and let oats soak overnight.
  3. In the morning, stir the milk into the oats and place over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring in more milk if too dry. Stir in 1 cup of the raspberry chia jam with the banana, whey protein, nut butter, and cinnamon; warm through.
