Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal

I think I’ve gone a little oatmeal crazy. I know this is only my second post about it, but I’ve pretty much eaten it every morning now. Yesterday I made peanut butter oatmeal for Mr. Beagle and liked it so much that I decided to elaborate on it today. I’m not a huge peanut butter fan but this is the perfect amount! And the cocoa powder adds that little bit of chocolate flavor that makes this taste more like it should be a dessert than a healthy breakfast. I added cinnamon because I think it makes everything taste better. These oatmeal recipes are so easy I feel silly even posting them but I know some people would look at the oatmeal container and feel completely lost without a “step-by-step” so for you who like lists, I present “Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal”.

Ingredients

1/2 c. oats
1 tbs. wheat germ
1 c. water
1 tbs peanut butter (I used chunky)
1 tsp cocoa powder
2 tbs agave
dash cinnamon
soymilk to thin the oatmeal if it get’s too thick
nondairy chocolate chips to garnish

Combine oats, wheat germ and water. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Mix in remaining ingredients and serve. So easy! And it’s vegan so it’s super easy for your body to digest and turn into energy!

Mr. Beagle: n/a
He was already gone to work when I made this but yesterday he loved the all-peanut butter version I made him. He said it made him so full that he couldn’t finish his coffee.

Me: A+
This was sooooo good. I even like it better than the pumpkin pie oatmeal which is huge for me since I love pumpkin. This oatmeal was the perfect mix of flavors and of sweetness. This one may be my new favorite. And with the mix of fiber, whole grains, and protein, it’s a perfect breakfast.
