Monster Cookie Oatmeal

Amy:

The ultimate cookie that I loved growing up was Monster Cookies!!!  They were so delicious, chewy sweat oatmeal cookies with peanut butter and smarties AND chocolate chips.  What’s not to love?  I actually find that this recipe tastes like a monster cookie and the perk is, it’s healthy AND I get to eat it for breakfast!  I eat it for breakfast most mornings.

A good nutrition tip is to include protein in your breakfast.  Why?  Because it keeps you fuller longer, helps with weight management, kids can stay focussed better in school and it makes you more satisfied with your meal.  Enjoy this simple and tasty breakfast idea.  Serve with some fruit for a complete meal!

Ingredients:

1/3 cup quick cooking oats

3/4 cup of water or enough to cook it

1 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp maple syrup or brown sugar

Splash of milk

Directions:

Cook oats according to package directions.  When cooked add peanut butter and sugar, stir until melted.  Add milk to achieve desired consistency.

Enjoy!
