Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Sharing is caring!


The wet, snowy and cold weather of Old Man Winter is a perfect time to enjoy a bowl of warm oatmeal. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal will feel like a dessert and warm you up in no time. You can even *freeze* this for another time (directions included)! That makes this a great go-to breakfast for busy mornings or those mornings you just want something delicious with little effort.

Who am I kidding though – oatmeal is great anytime! It’s a comfort food, and with any good comfort food, you can enjoy it anytime.

I love changing up plain boring oatmeal, so I hope you’ll try this and let me know how it is!

Sunday 30th of December 2018

I'm making this recipe this morning, but am hoping it turns out palatable. I'm wondering if you meant rolled oats here instead of steel cut oats because my steel cut oats do not look flaky like this and after reading the side of the package, requires cooking for 5 minutes, then turning to low heat and cooking uncovered for 25 minutes. It also says for 1/4 c of steel cut oats to cook in 1 cup of water. I used the smallest saucepan I have so I just keep adding water in as it absorbs it. It sounds great, but just wanted to mention that maybe you meant rolled or instant oats here for a short 5 minute cooking time.
