Dark Chocolate Dreams Banana Oatmeal

This sweet fulfilling oatmeal would confuse anyone into believing it to be dessert hour.
In another dastardly case of Much Ado Without Bread, Peanut Butter & Company's infamous Dark Chocolate Dreams would have easily been scooped out of the jar via silver spoon and ferocious morning appetite. But right beside my blue capped friend in the overly stocked, very disorganized cabinet, stood the near empty box of oatmeal- the perfect lead in this Saturday breakfast story.
After being swirled together in a little pot with boiled sweet near blackened banana puree, the oatmeal and Dark Chocolate Dreams danced a tasty, belly satisfying jingle on the excited taste buds. Strawberry slices and chocolate chips added additional flare to fruity peanut butter goodness and made sleepy eyes widened to alert energy.
Now how many breakfast combinations make that kind of magic happen?
Overall a very delicious treat that must be created repeatedly, especially for my special chocoholic peanut butter friends. Well, when I stock up on more oatmeal of course. Forget the bread!

Dark Chocolate Dreams Banana Oatmeal Ingredients and Preparation

1 1/2 cup almond milk
1 ripened banana
2 teaspoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup quick rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoon Peanut Butter & Company's Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
pinch of salt
sliced strawberries (optional)
handful chocolate chips (optional)

Combine almond milk, bana, agave nectar, and vanilla into a blender. Leave it to a slight chunky consistency.
In a medium heated small saucepan, bring this mixture to a boil.
Add rolled oats, cinnamon, and ginger.
Once it reaches desired thickness (about 3-5 minutes), turn off heat and stir in peanut butter and salt.
Garnish with strawberries and chocolate chips.

Bananas & dark chocolate peanut butter swirl together in a bowl of euphoric bliss.
Quick! Where's the spoon??? :D
