We all have a holy grail breakfast, right? Well, mine is my Chocolate Peanut Butter Date Oatmeal.
Loaded with healthy ingredients that just so happen to taste delicious, I can’t think of what I would rather have for breakfast. In fact, I eat have this for breakfast probably 5 days per week.
I initially didn’t think I was going to share this because it is so simple and is really just a basic oatmeal recipe. However, I understand that many people are looking for simple, healthy recipes. I figure it is never a bad thing to include healthy recipes are are easy to prepare. I know I appreciate them all the time! Most of us have pretty busy lives, and who wants to spend hours in the kitchen? Not me, at least on most days.
My peanut butter date oatmeal is simple, delicious, and filled with amazing nutrients. I feel full for hours, and I feel energized enough to get through my busy morning. That is really all I can ask for!
My recipe is very customizable. Add whatever toppings you want. Don’t want cocoa powder? No Problem! Prefer almond butter? use that. Strawberries sound better than dates? ok. I may prefer peanut butter and dates (hens, you know, the title and the photo), but the recipe is so simple, that you can really do whatever you want with it.
By the way, if you do not have time to cook the oats in the morning, you can always just add the oat ingredients into a jar the night before, mix it up, and throw it in the fridge! Yup, my oats can be overnight oats and taste just as good! I like to give as many options I can!
Whether you prefer overnight oats or cooking them in the morning, my chocolate peanut butter date oatmeal can give you everything you need in the morning. Energy, lots of fuel, and the delicious taste of something that should be dessert, but isn’t at all.
