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!
