Just this morning I made this recipe for Mom and she said that it was just like eating candy. Those were her exact words? Within minutes she had devoured every bit of this sweet porridge, it was great to watch.
Growing up I loved, no wait , I LOVED (!) peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so making this adult version took me right back to my childhood. This is a very filling breakfast that will help you carry on throughout your day! And maybe make you feel like a kid too. :)
There is one important step when it comes to making this porridge and that is the technique of soaking the oats before mixing them in. Please click (here) to read about my reasons for doing this.
I am starting to see more and more people catch on to soaking oats but they often add the rest of the ingredients and then soak the oats. If our goal is to reduce the phytic acid through the soaking process, why would we want to consume the liquid in which is released into? Something to think about.
Feel free to use any flavor of jam that you have on hand and if you can’t eat peanut butter, use almond butter… or any nut butter! It’s all delicious in my book.
