Brownie Batter Peanut Butter Swirl Oatmeal

There was this one time, back in like 2012…when I made some brownie batter oats. I decided to reinvent this recipe for 2 reasons. #1- peanut butter completes chocolate and #2- the photos do not do the recipe justice! Nope, not at all. 

I still can’t believe how far I have come in just 2 years with my food photography. Lots of practice, amazing technology, the will to learn, and amazing mentors

I seriously can’t stop looking at that peanut butter swirl. So perfect. 

I say explore with toppings- unsweetened coconut, muesli, banana, almond milk, coconut milk, nuts, you name it! I ate this for dinner last night (yeah I did!) and have left overs for today. I am thinking a mid-morning snack with a big dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt!

If you’re not big into stevia or organic cane sugar…try using mashed banana! I would use about a half a medium mashed nanner, which will bring out the sweetness of the cocoa powder and give you that rich brownie batter flavor :D
