I saw this recipe on CBS News. It took me at least a couple of years to try it because it seemed too easy and I kept thinking maybe I should add this or that to make it healthier. (Classic Karyn move, making things more complicated then they need to be.) When you have a 4 year old that takes a thousand years to eat breakfast on school days, peanut butter and oats and raisins in grab and go form means making it to school on time without meltdowns. Thank you simple recipe!
