Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal
- 2 cups 2% milk
- 2 cups water
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter
- banana slices, for topping
Whisk together milk, water, cocoa powder, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a sauce pot over medium heat. When bubbles begin to form around the edges, add oats and stir. Bring oats to a low boil then reduce heat to low. Cook until liquid is absorbed and oats are chewy, 5-6 minutes.
While oatmeal is cooking, heat the peanut butter in the microwave until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour oatmeal into four bowls and drizzle each bowl with a tablespoon of melted peanut butter. Top with banana slices to serve.
