Microwave Peanut Butter, Nutella and Coconut Oatmeal


I know that this sounds like a mouthful... but when it comes to oatmeal, I want to try every combination that I can possibly dream up.

Also, it's peanut butter and chocolate! This combination alone should convince anyone, even oatmeal haters, to try this out!

I have been making this for breakfast constantly. This one, or some variant pretty much every single day. Oatmeal might be my longest running obsession, followed closely by mug cakes.

But why oatmeal? Well, it keeps you fuller longer, and if you have some variant of peanut butter oatmeal (like this one), it will give you a healthy dose of protein and fiber, which makes it the perfect start to your day.

Personally, I like dry(ish) oatmeal with minimal liquid, so that every bite is jam packed with oats. But if you like your oatmeal on the liquidy side, I would suggest to ad 1 cup of milk instead of 2/3 cup. Or, if you wanted to cut back on the calories (if you are worried what 1 tablespoon of Nutella will do to your waistline), you can replace the milk with water. I personally prefer the milk because it's creamier and keeps me full until lunch, but it's a preference thing.

After this morning, my Nutella jar is looking kind of empty. I think I will be off to the grocery store soon so that I can have my morning fix of this oatmeal tomorrow..

  11. I usually start my day off with oatmeal as well, but mine usually consist of peanut butter, raisins, and cinnamon. I definitely need to try it with the Nutella and peanut butter, sounds like like a yummy combination.

  13. Last week only I got big bottle of Nutella, because my grandson likes it as a spread on bread. I wanted to use in some other recipes.
    Thanks for this new idea with oatmeal, which is always there in my kitchen.
