PB&J Hot Cereal

Today I’m going to share with you two new discoveries that will have you changing your mind about breakfast forever… well, it will at least having you hopping in your car to get to your nearest grocery store to try it out.  This will not disappoint.

If you haven’t noticed… I don’t typically post about breakfast.  It’s not because I don’t eat it though… In fact I actually LOVE breakfast, brunch, eggs, pancakes, everything breakfast related.  It’s really just because I’ve been eating the same breakfast for the past year and a half.  If you missed it, here you go.  It’s something I put together at night for the next morning with some fat free greek yogurt, some kind of fruit, and some type of jam.  It might be boring to eat every day for over a year but It’s healthy, filling, and so yummy.

After discovering Peanut Butter Co’s Mighty Maple Peanut Butter, and also Trader Joe’s new Organic Multigrain Hot Cereal, I have not eaten my boring Greek Yogurt all week!  This new breakfast kicks butt.  And admit it, who doesn’t love PB&J!?

PB&J Hot Cereal

Serves: 1 


1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Organic Multigrain Hot Cereal

1 cup Water

1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter Co’s Mighty Maple Peanut Butter (or regular)

1 Tablespoon Jam

1 Tablespoon Dried Cranberries or Raisins

1 Tablespoon Roasted Peanuts

2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk


1.  Cook Hot Cereal according to package directions:  combine water and hot cereal in a saucepan and heat while stirring occasionally.  Put the lid on the saucepan but remember to stir every 30 seconds or so, it WILL overflow on you if you aren’t careful.  Stir until the water has been absorbed.

2.  Place the hot cereal in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients.  Stir and enjoy.

While the hot cereal is the main ingredient of this hearty breakfast, the peanut butter just steals the show.  The maple flavor isn’t overpowering but gives the cereal just that extra hint of sweetness that is so tasty.  The PB gets super creamy when it’s heated by the hot cereal, it’s hard not to add more!

Play around with this, you can use different nuts, jams, and fruit too.  Don’t mind me while I do a little dance to the Peanut Butter Jelly song… have a great day!
