Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter Oatmeal

How do you like your warm oatmeal on a cold morning? How about apples, cinnamon, raisins, and peanut butter? Dig into this bowl and maybe even drizzle some chocolate on top.

After the first successful variation of my dad’s apple harvest oatmeal turned into pumpkin pecan oatmeal I decided to try my hand at it again. Being Saturday I am sure you can guess specifically what flavor I went for… peanut butter of course! But the chocolate part of today’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Saturday get’s benched for cinnamon and raisin. I used cinnamon raisin peanut butter for this oatmeal because I thought it would be the perfect peanut butter flavor for such a recipe. Turns out it says right on the jar that it is perfect for oatmeal, which I noticed mid-way through cooking it! Funny how things work out.

Alright I did let chocolate play a little bit with a drizzle of chocolate syrup on top. Ohio State plays Minnesota at noon today so I had to throw on at least a little chocolate to officially call it another successful #PBChocSat!

Between my adventures in Seattle and now LA I have not been eating all that healthy, not that I am complaining because it’s been delicious. To add to the food fest, last night my nephew Luke went trick or treating for the first time and I managed to sneak a couple pieces for myself (while adoring the cutest tool box on the face of the earth). And now today is college football-food day. I decided to mix up a slightly healthier peanut butter and chocolate recipe to balance out all the rest and feel slightly less guilty. I am also making up for the break in my gym work out schedule by lifting babies. Maybe some crunches with my newest nephew Griffin on my stomach or kicking my feet while big brother Luke sits on my feet. Quality time and a work out!

Apple Harvest Oatmeal Revisit

Try this homemade oatmeal recipe and you may never buy the microwave packets again. It’s hard to beat fresh apples and walnuts. 

Apple Harvest Oatmeal 2

After nearly 4 years of blogging I’ve started what many food bloggers have done before me – remaking old recipes. The pictures from those early years not only do not do the recipes justice, but they may have been overlooked or forgotten after all this time which does not suit them. One recipe in particular is my dad’s apple harvest oatmeal. This is the oatmeal that ruined me for the instant microwave packets. In my world, nothing can compare to this oatmeal except maybe variants on the additional ingredients. For example, I recently shared the recipe for a pumpkin version which was a fun fall flavor change-up.
