Hi Everyone and Happy National Oatmeal Day!!
I finally got a holiday ahead of time! For some reason my food sync is in line, but always a day early or a day to late, today I am actually posting on the correct day!! I got an e-mail telling me to be prepared for oatmeal day and I thought, hmmm, oatmeal I haven’t had that in months!! So why not make some sweet, chocolaty oatmeal for breakfast?
I do love oatmeal and I thought that having it with sweet chocolate and creamy peanut butter would be perfect time to have around Halloween This is a great way to get that candy fix, plus this is pretty healthy for you, except for the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips on top, but they make it all that much better!!
I do have to tell you that this oatmeal filled me for hours! It’s hearty, thick and just sweet enough to hit that sweet tooth. I am sooooooo loving this big bowl of peanut butter chocolate heaven!! Man, nothing beats waking up to such a great breakfast!!
Not only is this dish tasty it’s also fast making. I think it may have taken me about 5 minutes to make it! It took me longer to photograph, than to make. I will tell you this oatmeal also tastes pretty good cold!! But if you serve it hot, those peanut butter chips will melt right in it and oh baby is that good!!!
Rich chocolate and creamy peanut butter mixed into healthy oats. It's like eating a big healthy cookie for breakfast.

If you want to save 40 calories, some fat and sugar you can omit the peanut butter chips on top, but I honestly think it gives it that extra deliciousness that this oatmeal deserves!
