Hello all! I don’t know about the weather where you are, but it is cold here. Bootcamp this morning was very chilly. I ran my first mile in the complete dark and had visions of winter training flash before my eyes…I’m not ready to run on treadmills yet!! It was also very wet this morning, leading us to do a more leg and arm-centric workout and leave the core stuff for the comfort of our living room floors.
I had originally planned on a Chocolate-Zucchini Smoothie after our workout, but as Noel and I were walking in the cold and wet this morning, I realized I wanted something hot to comfort me. Noel mentioned she was going to get oatmeal for breakfast and my tummy immediately rumbled. I haven’t had hot oats in a very long time (breakfasts this summer have consisted of either smoothies or overnight oats). I mentioned this oatmeal before in my Favorite Foods: Oats post, and now it is time for a formal recipe!
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Oats
- 2/3 cup oats
- 1+ cup almond milk
- 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (alternatively you could use regular protein powder and a scoop of cacao or cocoa powder)
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
