Creamy Peanut Butter Oats… is perhaps the perfect breakfast, let me tell you why!
Well, where do I start? I LOVE peanut butter (it’s one of my favorite things) and I know that most other people love peanut butter too. This recipe contains lots of healthy protein (from the peanut butter), healthy fats (coconut oil, peanut butter) and good carbs (oats, peanut butter, pure maple syrup). It’s a well-balanced, healthy meal! There’s also lots of other healthy nutrients found in the ingredients like cinnamon and vanilla.
This recipe is healthy, balanced, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, soy-free AND totally creamy, peanut-buttery & delicious! It’s basically a treat for breakfast!
