The Low FODMAP diet can sometimes be challenging when it comes to fast and easy delicious breakfast recipes. But with this 10-minute peanut butter and jelly oatmeal recipe your taste buds will be happy and your gut will be too! Plus, as a registered dietitian I am always talking about the benefits of oats. They are a fantastic source of fibre to help with regular, healthy bowel movements. If you are on the hunt for peanut butter and jelly recipes – look no further!

Is it healthy to put peanut butter in oatmeal?

Peanut butter is a great way to add protein to oatmeal and makes it extra-creamy. If you’re looking for even more protein, try making this oatmeal with some lactose-free milk instead of water. There are so many possibilities!

What mixes well with oatmeal?

Aside from the obvious, which is peanut butter and fresh fruit, other great mix-ins for oatmeal include bananas, chocolate chips and walnuts. Or, you can also try freshly diced apples and cinnamon. Another one of my personal favourites is peaches and plain greek yogurt.

Is it OK to eat oatmeal more than once a day?

Oatmeal can absolutely be enjoyed on a daily basis. Eating oatmeal more than once a day can be a great affordable, delicious and easy option. However, if eating oatmeal begins to displace other nutritious foods and a varied diet it might be valuable to determine the reason why you are eating oatmeal more than once a day. Get in touch with a registered dietitian if you are concerned about your eating habits or overall meal balance.

    Instead of cooking the oats with water could they be soaked overnight in just the milk & the other ingredients?
