Creamy Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Recipe

You know 5 years ago, when I had Cason they didn’t have near the information that they have now! Everything in the baby realm is different. The baby toys, baby sleepers, sleep sleep sacs (didn’t have those then), bottles, bouncers, pack ‘n plays everything has changed.

When I had Cason I breast fed him till he was 14 months. He was a great eater, 7 minutes on each side and he was done. It was amazing. I produced enough milk to feed him and to store for later. I was a milk making machine. This time around I’m realizing that a lot of women struggle with producing milk, I had no idea.

Any moms out there run into this issue? I’ve had quite a few friends say that they would pump and barely get an ounce of milk.

These days lactation cookies or energy bites are the thing. I’ve seen recipes all over Pinterest! I’ve even seen lactation cookie mixes in the baby section at Walmart. So, what are the magic ingredients that are suppose to help with milk production?

Brewers Yeast. Oatmeal. Flaxseed.

Well, I wanted to give it a try and see if those ingredients did indeed help with milk production. When I got home from the hospital, I pumped for the first time and then had a craft beer with enough time to let it get through my system. I did the craft beer because it has brewers yeast in it and honestly I did help!

But lately my “jam” has been this Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal. And when I say “my jam” I mean I literally have had it almost every morning and sometimes for dinner (because it’s easy and delicious) since Madison’s been born. This Oatmeal Recipe is made on the stove in a saucepan. It’s just oatmeal, ground flaxseed, mashed banana (for sweetness), cinnamon and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. If you’d like to add regular milk you can, I’ve just been trying to go dairy free while nursing. 🙂

How to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal

Once it’s on the stove it takes about 3-4 minutes to cook the oatmeal and get it to the right consistency.

I like to top mine with the peanut butter right away because it gets warm and melts into the oatmeal.. yum! And then a swirl of your favorite jam or jelly and fresh fruit!

This oatmeal is loaded with 10 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein to fill you up and leave you feeling satisfied all morning. Plus it’s flippin delicious!

Bon Appetit friends!
