Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

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!!!

    1. Yum! Your oatmeal looks really good! I love oatmeal so much! I would love more recipes! Right now I am hooked on pumpkin oatmeal with a few mini dark chocolate chips sprinkled on top! I always sweeten my oatmeal with 1/2 a chopped banana and I also wisk in a beaten egg as it cooks!

    2. Wowie zowie – you really know how to make an amazing breakfast – what a way to start the day. I never let my kids have chocolate cereal for breakfast when they were growing up so don’t tell them if I make this for me!

    3. holy yum!! I made some this morning by adding in a little protein powder and I like to add shredded carrots. they cook down to have no taste, but add some good bulk

    4. I have not tried Chocolate oatmeal before! I will have to give it a shot. looks like all things yummy!

    5. I didn’t know it was National Oatmeal Day, so it’s funny that that is what I made the kids and me for breakfast today! I like to make it with almond milk, and a mashed up banana. I also love to make different flavors of refrigerator oatmeal (fave is cocoa peanut butter). I love how versatile oatmeal is…cinnamon, chocolate chips, peanut butter, cocoa, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, nutmeg, cloves, apples, honey, etc…

    6. I had no idea such a thing as PB chips even existed! Thanks 🙂 Yum!

    7. I’ll take a great big bowl!

    8. Oh you know I’d love to wake up to that
