This Peanut Butter Cinnamon Apple Chia Oatmeal has been one of my favorite breakfasts lately. And the girls’ too!
Why I love it
Apples: Apples are one of my favorite fruits. In this oatmeal they add natural sweetness that I love.
Peanut butter: We love peanut butter in our house. I love that it adds a little more protein to my oatmeal, and gives it a more creamy texture. Yum.
Chia seeds: These little seeds are full of fiber, which helps with digestion and feeling full. Plus, they also give oatmeal added protein.
Old fashioned oats: They’re a great source of fiber and carbs and give you fuel to start your day. Oatmeal also fills me up, especially when I add in more protein from peanut butter and chia seeds.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon is an anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting spice. And it adds a little sweet flavor to this oatmeal.
This Peanut Butter Cinnamon Apple Chia Oatmeal is quick, filling, delicious and full of good-for-your-body ingredients. Win-win-win-win. 🙂
