Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

This Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal is everything you can possibly want in a breakfast. It’s quick, easy, warm, delicious, low calorie, and SO SO GOOD FOR YOU. First of all, it’s made with almond milk instead of dairy so those that are lactose intolerant (or sensitive) can enjoy this and those that aren’t, won’t know the difference. You still get all the creaminess that you normally would with dairy but for a fraction of the calories! Then we add in chia seeds which are super high in fiber, calcium, protein, and are great for your heart. Plus, everyone already knows how good oatmeal is for you and the peanut butter is high in protein so really the only “guilt” here comes from the chocolate chips. But when you’re having a healthy breakfast like this I wouldn’t really worry about it too much. So go ahead and dig into this big delicious bowl of oatmeal, it’ll actually taste like dessert…

Doesn’t that look so incredible?! Honestly, this tastes like a warm chocolate fudge brownie and not at all like a healthy low calorie breakfast. Try it out for breakfast, and before long you will be enjoying this for dessert at any given time.
