Yummy Yummy! If you are over the age of 30, I know you’ve had this before……..CoCo Wheats! Remember them? Yes, I bet you do! And if you don’t or are a youngin and have never had them, you need to give them a try. They are jam packed with lots of vitamins and minerals and are nice and filling, like oatmeal.
I was wandering down the cereal aisle the other day and saw them and thought “Yeah, that would be a great alternative to eating my oatmeal every single day”. CoCo Wheats are an easy, healthy way to mix up your breakfast routine.
So according to the box you bring a 1/2 cup of milk or water to a boil, then add the CoCo Wheats mixing for 30 sec. Then you just let them sit for 2 minutes and they are ready to eat. The box says you can add sugar and/or salt to the milk. Don’t do this! I’ve got a little secret to make them even tastier without adding needless sugar or salt.
So what do I add to make them even tastier with a little bit more of a protein punch? Add 1 tablespoon of Peanut Butter! That’s right, now you’ve got a healthy bowl of goodness that tastes like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. Seriously.
You just make them like the box says, without adding salt or sugar. I used soy milk, you can use whatever kind of milk you want. Then, transfer them to the bowl you’re going to eat out of and add 1/4 more cup of milk and the 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. I used Extra Crunchy Jiff. I add a little more milk because they’re pretty thick right out of the pot and I like my warm cereals a bit thinner and not so think. 🙂
Try this out and let me know what you think!
