About 80% of the time, I crave sweet, unhealthy breakfasts… like donuts. And cinnamon rolls. And Reese’s Puffs. It’s really hard to pass up these options when I’m rushing around in the morning trying to get ready for work.
But, I’d like to live a while so, I find healthy and quick alternatives. Obviously this oatmeal doesn’t taste like Reese’s Puffs, but it’s a totally sufficient substitute. Especially topped with heavy cream… balance, right?
Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal
1/2 cup quick oats

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
splash of milk or cream
1. Mix water, quick oats, cocoa powder, and salt in a pot on the stove (or make in the microwave).
2. Cook until you’ve reached a desired consistency, then stir in the honey and vanilla.
