Lately, I have been craving oatmeal! While part of this craving comes from the Fall weather that has finally settled in, it also happens to be one of the few things that sounds good and comes together quickly for an early breakfast.
Early for me really does mean early. Since I'm currently working both a full-time and part-time job, I’ve been getting up at 4:30 am to get in my workout before heading off to work. On the days I work both jobs, I don’t get home until after 9:30 and let’s be honest…a workout is certainly not going to happen then.
Since I am NOT a morning person, getting up this early is a huge feat for me. Breakfast needs to be quick and painless, but also pretty filling since lunch seems to be happening later and later each day.
Mounds (or Almond Joy) Oatmeal
Sweetener to taste (I like mine with 1 packet of Splenda)
Pinch of salt
OPTIONAL: ½ tsp almond extract – to make an Almond Joy flavor
If using almond extract, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the extract.
If using almond extract, stir in once oatmeal is cooked to your liking.
