Peanut Butter Chocolate Cereal

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
Adapted from Whole Foods New Body and Fitnessista
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!

  1. Well I think it tastes amazing. The key is to start changing your taste buds to start enjoying REAL food, not the processed junk. And once you do you will see how tasty real food really is. I'll make it for you to try, don't you worry!

  2. You can also toast the oats to give the cereal a crunch and a deep warm flavor. Vanilla unsweetened almond milk would also be yummy. Thanks for the ideas.

  3. This recipe sounds great. I really like the concept. The idea of toasting the oats is nice, and I would probably use a whole scoop of protein powder, simply because of the level of protein I want for my meals. I would check the nutrition before doing that, though. Thank you for this nice idea.
