Peanut Butter Jelly Time!


Hope everyone’s Mondays are off to a good start.

I’m a little slow to get moving this morning so I decided to tackle my desk tasks first thing. ย Before I did that though, breakfast was needed.

Peanut butter and jelly oats!

I tried something different with this batch…

I normally add the strawberries right at the start of cooking…

But today I held them out for the first half of cooking so that they would still be warm but wouldn’t disintegrate completely (which is what normally happens when I add the softer fruit like berries and peaches in first thing).

And it worked out really well!
