It's been about a year since I started this blog. A lot has changed for me since then, but what hasn't changed is my love for Hungry Girl recipes. While I currently have very limited time to write my blog, I am keeping it available so you can use it as a resource for Hungry Girl recipe reviews. Since most of my time goes towards my two jobs, my family, and training for a half marathon, my posting will be limited for the time being.

Well, this was the first "growing oatmeal" bowl that I was truly disappointed with. I was hoping that this one would be a better peanut butter option than the PB & Chocolate Oatmeal Blitz I recently reviewed (which was good, just not very peanut buttery). It even smelled delicious while I was cooking the oatmeal, and reminded me of a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. I had high hopes for this recipe, but was left disappointed when I went to eat it.
It was again not very peanut buttery, and tasted mostly like strawberry-flavored oatmeal. As a matter of fact, the only peanut butter in the recipe was two teaspoons that were mixed with Almond Breeze and drizzled on top of the oatmeal. As a result, only some bites had any peanut butter taste at all, while the majority tasted like strawberries. Even the strawberry taste seemed a little diluted for some reason - even though the strawberries I used were nice and sweet.
So, I am left still looking for a yummy peanut buttery Hungry Girl dish that is low in fat and calories. I will keep trying, because I am sure it is out there somewhere!
Oh well. Fortunately, there are plenty of other oatmeal recipes of hers that I did enjoy, so I will just be sticking to those instead.
