Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

I was craving something sweet for breakfast on Monday morning.  I guess since it was the beginning of the week, I wanted something comforting.  This oatmeal hit the spot.  I cannot wait to make it again!

This recipe was inspired from here:

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine oats, almond milk, a dash of sea salt and heat in the microwave for 1 minute.  Stir in cocoa powder and heat for another 1 minute watching closely to avoid spillage.
  2. Allow it to sit in the microwave or on the counter for about 10 minutes.
  3. Place in the fridge overnight to soften the oats and add volume.
  4. In the morning, reheat for about 1 minute.
  5. Stir in mashed banana and chocolate peanut butter.
  6. Top with crushed peanuts.

Even though I used chocolate peanut butter, adding the extra cocoa powder took this breakfast beyond amazing.  The peanuts added a nice crunch and helped make the peanut taste stand out.  The banana added sweetness, creaminess, and increased the flavor.  Chocolate peanut butter and banana = amazing!

Based on using Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Rolled Oats and Silk Original PureAlmond Milk, this recipe yields approximately 290 calories and 10g protein.
