Fudgy Banana and Peanut Butter Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist


1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1 ripe banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 or 2 tbsp peanut butter
pinch of salt
  1. Bring 1 cup liquid to a boil, add 1/2 cup regular rolled oats, and reduce heat to medium. I also add a spoonful of milled flax at the same time as my oats.
  2. Mash up a ripe banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir. If it doesn’t look very chocolaty, add more cocoa powder.
  4. If you’d like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, drop in small clumps of peanut butter and stir in. I don’t like to stir mine in completely. I like it left in clumps so I get bursts of peanut butter flavor every few bites. 🙂
  6. Transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice and any other additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, etc.). I used part of a sliced banana, chocolate chips, and Reese’s pieces.
