Recipe for 5-minute peanut butter apple chia seed oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ~2/3 cup water or milk
  • 1 small apple, diced
  • 1-2 tablespoons natural, unsalted peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Add chia seeds to oatmeal and add liquid of choice into the bowl
  2. Allow the bowl to sit for about 2 minutes (or until the chia seeds have soaked up a majority of the liquids) then microwave on high for 2 minutes
  3. Meanwhile, dice the apple
  4. Add the apple to the cooked oats and microwave on high for 30 more seconds
  5. Add the peanut butter to the bowl allowing it to get melty (so then you can stir it all together getting every bite covered in peanut butter!)

Lunch: More of my homemade turkey & veggie chili (recipe here) topped with plain Siggi’s yogurt, mashed avocado and hot sauce plus blue corn chips and an orange on the side
