Trying to find something healthy for breakfast that doesn’t leave me starving an hour later, is difficult. We’ve really gotten into oatmeal lately, and trying new flavors and combinations is a must to keep it interesting.
I had a jar of PB2 and I wanted to do something with it. I love peanut butter, but I thought a peanut butter/chocolate combo would be amazing and thus we began the task of figuring out the perfect ratio of ingredients to get a flavor we loved.
What you will find below, is the final result. You don’t have to use pb2, you can use actual peanut butter. However, the nutrition information included is based on the use of PB2.
You can also substitute powdered hot cocoa for the unsweetened cocoa and sugar, if you’d rather do that, but again, nutrition information will be different.
