A satisfying 5 minute healthy breakfast that is wholesome, packed with nutrients and so yummy! Topped with fresh fruit, coconut shreds, and dark chocolate – a vegan and gluten free friendly breakfast! This oatmeal is topped with fresh fruit, shredded coconut, creamy peanut butter, and a little bit of dark chocolate.
Breakfast never tasted so good!
The key to getting a creamy, not-gluey bowl of oatmeal is using enough water. Cooking oatmeal in milk tends to make stickier, thicker oatmeal. If preferred you can add a splash of almond milk or regular milk to your oatmeal.
For extra crunch/texture, add your favorite nuts or seeds – this peanut butter oatmeal is so versatile when it comes to the toppings. If you don’t want to use peanut butter, you can swap for cashew butter or almond butter. Use honey or coconut sugar as your sweetener if you don’t have agave.
