Blueberry, Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal (Microwaveable + Vegan) : This is a perfect combination of two classic favorite’s the Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich and the blueberry muffin. We replaced the sandwich and muffin with oats and created this super delicious and heart-healthy 3 Minutes Breakfast or Anytime Snack.
Calling ALL breakfast and snack lovers as this ‘Blueberry, Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal (Microwaveable + Vegan)’ recipe is a great mix of both. It just can’t get easier than this, I mean a 3 minutes microwave recipe that tastes equally delicious!!! One thing that I love doing the most is creating fusion recipes where I combine 2-3 different ingredients and in this case, I combined two of our favorite classic flavors – the PB&J sandwich (who doesn’t love it right) and the blueberry muffin and created this healthy take. The fun part, instead of using grape jelly (for the PB&J), I added Welch’s 100% Grape Juice (Concord Grapes). The reason for adding the juice is first, It makes the oatmeal so much more flavorful and second, I’m trying to incorporate more of the color purple which is related to heart health. So why not combine taste, health and easy together in one dish.Did you know that Concord grapes are filled with natural plant nutrients known as polyphenols (the purple skins) and that polyphenols help us keep a healthy heart and is also rich in prebiotic (healthy gut). Hence, I’m all about adding more of color purple in my daily food content and the easiest way is this Welch’s 100% Grape Juice made with Concord grapes. Also, since February is American Heart Month then why not celebrate it with a 2-in-1 recipe that’s been a favorite of so many of you. As I mentioned above, this is a combination of two classic flavors but you can increase or decrease any of the flavor combination as per your choice. If you are more of a PB&J kind of person, add more peanut butter + grape juice and if you like blueberry muffin more, then you can add more of blueberry – It’s a total Win-Win. It’s also a great way of incorporating more heart healthy ingredients.
Once the oatmeal is made, I let it cool down for 30 seconds and then add some fresh blueberries+concord grapes (optional) and sprinkle some coconut sugar on it just to make it look really fancy…you know like the way we get in a plush bakery or restaurant. I always believe in making the food look pretty as we all eat with our eyes first. If you want, you can even add some extra peanut butter on top and just enjoy this perfect delight one bite after another.
Here’s a COUPON from Welch’s to help you achieve those healthy goals (Click on the picture):So, go ahead and create this delicious yum and enjoy it hot or cold. Did I mention they make a great to-go snack 🙂
