About Me

My Photo
I am a teacher, fitness/yoga instructor, runner, celebrity stalker, chocolate lover, embarrassing dancer, wine guzzler, can't-live-without-my-girlfriends kind of girl. I also have a collection of high heels that strongly outweighs my collection of runners. My goal is to find balance in my life through health and exercise- and when I say balance, I mean kicking ass in the gym and enjoying food, wine, family, friends, and basking in celebrity news. Let's eat clean and do some craaahaaayzy workouts together... followed by a glass of wine.

PB & J Quick Oats Recipe!

Pin It Who doesn't love Peanut Butter and Jelly?

If you don't, I don't want to know.

This recipe was so easy, and it actually tastes like you are eating something you shouldn't.

I'm not sure if this looks delicious or disgusting, but let me assure you, it tastes amazing. 
What you'll need:

1/2 cup steel cut oats
OR 1/2 cup quick oats
1 tsp natural nut butter
1/2 scoop to 1 scoop of  GNC's Pro Performance Chocolate 

2-3 dates, ripped into small pieces
Mix protein powder with oats. Cook steel cut or quick oats as directed, adding a tad more water to make up for the extra protein powder in the oats. Steel cut oats will take longer- I often make this snack at work, so I usually use the quick oats as they will cook with just boiling water from the kettle- but I've made steel cut oats in the slow cooker overnight as well! Steel Cut Oats taste heartier and nuttier, almost like a quinoa consistency. Quick oats taste like regular oatmeal!

Once oats are made, add natural nut butter and dates. Stir.

Voila- you have a delicious, clean breakfast made in under 5 minutes!

Is there a certain guilty pleasure food that you wish came in a healthy (and tasty) version?
