Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Oatmeal

It’s no secret that I love oatmeal.  But sometimes, even a favorite meal can get routine.  I need some variety to keep my mornings interesting.  Well, that’s nothing chocolate & a blob of peanut butter can’t fix!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Oatmeal

1/2 c old fashioned oats

1 c water

1t sugar-free french vanilla creamer

1T natural peanut butter

2 sweetener packets

1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder  (I use Gaspari Myofusion in milk chocolate)

1/2 t unsweetened cocoa powder

 

Measure out 1/2 cup of oats

Put oats in a small pot with 1 cup of water, along with the sweetener.  When it begins to bubble, vigorously stir until it becomes  a whipped consistency.  Remove from heat.

Add peanut butter to the whipped oats. It will melt right in!

Next measure out 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder and dump that in too.

Before you stir it up, pour the creamer on top of the protein powder to help dissolve it. Then stir!

When it’s completely mixed, pour the whole thing into your bowl.  The quick stirring creates more volume so you get to eat what looks like twice as much, you know that sounds good!

Sprinkle the cocoa powder on top for an extra chocolate kick!  (I think next time I will try adding a few chocolate chips for some metly bites!)

This recipe serves 1 hungry person 😉 and will keep you full until lunch.
