PB&J Oatmeal

A kid-friendly breakfast everyone will enjoy!
Ingredients
  Water 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Rolled oats 2 Cup (32 tbs), non instant
  Unsalted butter stick 1⁄8
  Raisins/Dried cranberries 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Slivered almonds/Chopped almonds 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Vanilla extract 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Creamy low sodium peanut butter 3 Tablespoon (Or Homemade)
  Grape jelly/Jam 4 Teaspoon, room temperature
  Cinnamon/Substitute a fresh fruit and honey for a tasty and healthier alternative to store-bought jelly / jam 4 Dash (For Garnish)
Directions

In a dry small sauté pan, toast the almonds until a light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
Place a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the olive oil until it begins to swirl. Gently stir in your oats and toast until they just begin to brown, about 4-5 minutes.
In a tea kettle or small pot bring the water to a gentle boil. Once the oats are toasted, add in the raisins, then carefully pour in the boiling water. This will become a very rapid boil, so be careful. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered for about 5 minutes until most of the water is absorbed. Only stir it a few times, as you don’t want to make the oats too mushy.
Place the peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and heat for about 20-30 seconds just to soften it. When the oats are ready, remove from the heat and gently stir in the peanut butter and vanilla.

To serve, pour into a bowl, top with a teaspoon of jelly, some toasted almonds and finish with a dash of cinnamon.
