As you’ve seen, I love my oats. But sometimes i’m not in the mood for the texture of oatmeal and all I want is a bowl of cereal. Problem is, most of the boxed cereals are filled with sugar and preservatives. Then I found this recipe and really enjoyed it. But after I changed the flavor a bit I knew I hit the jackpot! It is so easy and simple and tastes delicious. This is a must try.
And yes, I ate this out of my children’s cereal bowl.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cereal
1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 Tb ground flaxseed
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder*
pinch of cinnamon (optional)
1 Tb all natural peanut butter
In your bowl mix together all the ingredients. Top with your desired amount of milk and any fruit you like. This goes especially well with some banana slices on top, but I was all out the day I took pictures 🙁
*If you don’t have protein powder you can use some cocoa powder and sweetener. My protein powder was already sweetened and I used rice milk which was sweet as well so I didn’t need to anything more.
This recipe really helped me get over my cereal craving. This is so good! And to make things go faster in the morning, you can put the dry ingredients into the bowl the night before and in the morning mix in the peanut butter and top with milk. Yum!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Please comment below and let me know!
