Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Yes, this happened.

The only drawback to eating chocolate and peanut butter for breakfast is that making oatmeal takes a lot longer than pouring almond milk on top of a bowl of Kashi.

But oh my goodness…it’s so amazing.

Using a lot of the peanut butter oatmeal recipe I posted the other day, I made this one with a few minor changes.  Here’s how to get your dessert for breakfast:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon of honey (more if you like sweeter)
  • packet of stevia
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla flavor

Cook the oats with the 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup almond milk.  Bring the almond milk and water to a boil, then add the oats.  Turn the temperature to medium and cook for five minutes.

Add the 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, honey, stevia, and vanilla to the blender.  You can spin it around a little, but it won’t do much since there isn’t much liquid.  When the oats finish cooking, add half of them to the blender and combine.

Put the mixture in a bowl and combine with the other half of the oats that you didn’t put in the blender.

It tastes like a peanut butter cup, doesn’t it?

Fun tip: don’t leave your bowl of oats unwashed in the sink when you finish.  It’s a PAIN to clean out.

There’s nothing to say that you can’t add some chocolate chips or other sweetness to this recipe.  Since it was for breakfast, I didn’t want to go too overboard.  If you add something, let me know!
