Another quick breakfast! Oatmeal seems like a no-brainer, but I thought I would post it anyway (plus I liked how the picture turned out). I hear so many people say that they don’t have time for breakfast. Oatmeal literally takes 4 minutes in the microwave. I love oatmeal, so I will have this for lunch or a mid-afternoon snack (since I normally have my Greek yogurt for breakfast). I also adore hot fruit!
One of my favorite breakfasts (before Weight Watcher’s) was a serving of oatmeal with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter swirled in at the end. The peanut butter would get all melty and it was soooo good. But it was also 9 PointsPlus and I wasn’t willing to start my day that far in the proverbial Point hole.
Cinnamon Oatmeal with Pears
Combine 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats with 1 cup water in a large microwave proof bowl and sprinkle with cinnamon. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add 1 diced pear and microwave for an additional 2 minutes. Add additional time, if needed, to reach desired consistency.
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, dry: 4 PointsPlus
Pear: 0 PointsPlus
