Love this easy protein oatmeal recipe! - M Loves M @marmarI know I’ve mentioned this Peanut Butter and Apple Oatmeal over the past few years because as soon as I made it I became obsessed. I make this oatmeal for myself, and now Augustine, at least 3 or 4 times a week during the fall and winter. It’s just so good, so healthy and so easy. The best trifecta right? If any of you make this peanut butter, apple  and chia seed oatmeal, tag me on Stories so I can see and share! I really hope you love it like I have!

The 5 Minute Peanut Butter and Apple Oatmeal I’ve Been Obsessed with For Years

5 Minute Peanut Butter and Apple Oatmeal
Cook Time
5 mins
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 1 bowl
  • ½ cup of old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup of nut milk unsweetened
  • ½ cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½-1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ apple diced
  • 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter
  1. Add old fashioned oats to a bowl with almond milk and water. Stir in chia seeds and cinnamon.Let sit for 2 minutes. Chia seeds should soak up the majority of the liquids.

  2. Stir and then microwave for 1 ½ minutes (note: microwave temperatures might vary). Meanwhile, dice up the apple and add to oatmeal once it’s done. 

  3. Microwave for another 30 seconds and then remove. Stir in peanut butter, allowing it to get melty, and sprinkle with additional cinnamon if you're cinnamon-obsessed like I am!

Recipe Notes

Also, feel free to add any additional toppings, like coconut flakes, hemp seeds, almond slices, granola, dried fruit, etc. This is the base and how I usually enjoy it but you can always play around with adding different things on top!

This oatmeal is so delicious and I love that it’s healthy too with the nut milk, peanut butter and of course the chia seeds. FYI chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and calcium. Also, 1 serving has 5.6 grams of protein so it’s a great way to start your morning, especially if you’re vegan/vegetarian!
