Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

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.

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.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Recipe

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 3 minutes

Chocolate and peanut butter flavors combine in their classic way, to create an easy, and delicious breakfast. Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal is a fun and unique combination to change up your oatmeal.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Quaker 1 minute Quick Oats
  • 1 tablespoon of Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons of PB2, you can also use peanut butter, but the calories were totaled using PB2
  • 2 teaspoons (1 packet) of Splenda (or other sweetener of choice)
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Whisk the oats, cocoa mix, peanut butter, salt, and ¾ cup of water in a medium microwave-safe bowl until well combined.
  2. Microwave on high for 2 ½ - 3 minutes, or until thickened. Stir and serve immediately.
  3. Makes one serving

Notes

  • After making this recipe several times, I've now used chocolate PB2 to create an even easier recipe. For those of you that do not know about this it is a powdered peanut butter that you mix up and it saves you TONS of calories. Some, and I mean some, stores have it but you can order it at amazon.com or Bellplantation.com. This is awesome and I have been finding new ways to cook with it all the time. Plus at bell plantations websight they have a whole recipe section.
  • Anyway, I put the standard two tablespoons in and mixed it all together and here is how the nutrition stacked up with my variation. Serving: calories=260 carbs=43 fat=4 protein=14 sodium=250 fiber=6 (this is using My Fitness Pal for calculations, so not necessarily 100% accurate)
  • I do not use the salt anymore either. I just prefer not to add sodium to something that I don't think needs it.
  • Take a look at it at 2 ½ minutes because at 3 minutes mine had done a little explosion in my microwave!
  • This oatmeal is hearty and lasted awhile before I got hungry. Approx. 3 hours or so.
  • Did you make this recipe?
