Imagine if you could take your favorite dessert and make it into breakfast. That’s what this recipe is like for me. OK, so I feel that way about Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes too. But right now we are talking about oatmeal.

My kids think oatmeal is gross, unless it’s in the form of a cookie. (Even then they are a little suspicious.) I’m pretty sure I went through a phase where I didn’t like oatmeal either, but I don’t really remember it. Plain oatmeal is meh. I don’t care for it. I have always preferred my oatmeal thick and flavored. A hot bowl of oatmeal feels cozy on a cold winter morning.

With chocolate and peanut butter… it’s practically dessert for breakfast. My kids are chocoholics like me, so this is an easier sell first thing in the morning.

Looking for easy breakfast ideas? Oatmeal is a breakfast staple, but it can get boring. If you love chocolate and peanut butter, then this Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal recipe will be a delicious breakfast treat.

 

Directions:

Pour the milk, water, cocoa powder, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt into a sauce pot over medium heat.

Heat until simmering, then add the oats into the pot and stir.

Reduce heat to low and cook until the oats are chewy and there’s no more liquid.

To make the topping, heat the peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds or until smooth.

Stir the mashed banana into the peanut butter until blended.

Serve the oatmeal in bowls, add the peanut butter topping, and enjoy! Garnish with extra peanuts for a richer (and crunchier) flavor. Personally, I’m a creamy peanut butter fan, but if you are all about chunky peanut butter – add some peanuts!
