People often ask if I really do eat chocolate every single day.
This makes me laugh… because if you talk to me at 9 AM, I’ve probably already eaten chocolate in at least one form.
Whether it’s a piece of a dark chocolate bar while cooking breakfast, or a handful of mini chocolate chips on my vegan pancakes, or going full-out with a slice of frosted chocolate cake (because it’s 2020, and are there even rules anymore?), I waste no time in consuming chocolate in the morning.
And I probably make this chocolate peanut butter oatmeal at least once a week.

It’s a single serving recipe that can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a family or meal prep for the week.
Change up the flavor by using almond butter, sunbutter (for allergy friendly), cashew butter, or even coconut butter – whatever you have on hand that sounds good!

The recipe was adapted from this Chocolate Oatmeal Recipe.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup milk of choice
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp dutch or additional regular cocoa powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1-2 tbsp peanut butter (or almond butter, or allergy friendly sub)
- sweetener of choice
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- optional 1 ripe banana
- optional 1/4 cup milk of choice or creamer (I like nutpods creamer, because it’s unsweetened and dairy free)
In a pot, combine all ingredients except the vanilla extract and creamer. Feel free to throw in handful of chocolate chips if you wish. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to low, and stir until thick. Take off the heat, stir in the extract, and sweeten as desired. Pour the creamer or additional milk over top for a creamier result, and swirl it into the oatmeal with a spoon. Top with chocolate chips and melted peanut butter if desired.View Nutrition Facts
