Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal



Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal
Oatmeal's a breakfast time staple in our house, with back-to-school quickly approaching I wanted to share my recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal. It's a fun way to keep breakfast simple and nutritious for the whole family! It also makes it a little bit easier to climb out of bed during those chilly fall mornings that will soon arrive.

The peanut butter and chocolate chips gives this oatmeal a flavor reminiscent of a beloved peanut butter cup while the banana acts as a natural sweetener. If you aren't fond of banana, maple syrup or brown sugar makes a great substitute, and equally delicious.

Either way it's a favorite way to start the day! 

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bob's Red Mill Recipe
For this recipe I started out with Bob's Red Mill Oatmeal either the Quick Cooking Rolled Oats or Old Fashioned Rolled Oats will work. I love that Oats are an incredible versatile whole grain that's high in fiber, perfect for helping keep the kids full until lunch, and can help reduce cholesterol. All Bob's Red Mill oats are kiln roasted to give them that wholesome flavor you've come to expect.
