DIY Chocolate Peanut Butter Instant Oatmeal

Welcome to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama + Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl to create awesome healthy recipes each week! This week’s theme is Choctoberfest!

Oatmeal = one of my favorite healthy breakfast foods. I have a tonnnn of it in my apartment and since I’m always on a mission to finish eating everything in my apartment before buying anything new, I figured I’d do something about it! I received free products in exchange for recipe development; all thoughts + opinions are mine and mine alone!

I’ve always wanted to try making my own instant oatmeal–it’s so portable and convenient, but the ready-made packages are expensive by the unit and also often contain way too much sugar.

I like that it’s super versatile too! You can add whatever the hecks you want in it (I’d stick to dry ingredients if you’re planning to let it keep for a bit. I stored them in various empty jars that I had since hooray for reusable containers and less waste, but if you don’t have any, ziploc bags will do!

I’ve made a number of recipes with Barlean’s Chocolate Silk Greens in the past, including:

It’s made of fair-trade, antioxidant-rich cocoa + non-GMO, with no added sugars (just sweetened with stevia) and is also dairy, soy, + gluten-free!

    I make instant oats like this to take camping and backpacking! Usually with lots of nuts & cinnamon & butterscotch chips to go on top.

    What a fun idea! I do love almost anything chocolate. haha You know, I don’t know if I’ve ever had oatmeal. I gues the typical oatmeal just never appeals.
