Recipe Notes

Note 1: I will not tell you how much peanut butter to use. I leave it at your discretion how much or how little (not likely!) you add to your oatmeal. One does not dictate the quantities of peanut butter consumed.

Note 2: If you decide to let the oatmeal do its thing, and not mix it while cooking, some of it might stick to the bottom of the pot. In that case, just stir thoroughly and the oatmeal will come together nice and thick and yummy.
