I don’t post recipes often, but this one is to die for! I’ve tried a few variations, but this one turned out the best.
Chocolate Banana Bread Oatmeal!
I’ve really been focusing on meeting my daily fibre goal the last two days, and in doing so I managed to somehow find this concoction to meet my carb and fibre macros. This is definitely breakfast food, but I ate it at midnight about an hour before my Insanity workout (nightshift ya know).
A word of caution…you CAN use dark quality cocoa powder in this recipe to keep the calories down, but I promise it will not even come close to being as delicious and satisfying. Trust me, I tried it.
1 packet of whole grain instant oatmeal
1 small banana (7 inches or less)
1 tbsp of PB2 (powdered peanut butter)
1 tbsp of NutraCleanse (or any other fibre supplement aka hemp, wheat germ etc)
0.5 ounces of Bakers 70% dark chocolate
Step 1: Put dry oatmeal, Nutracleanse, and PB2 in a bowl. Add hot water, and mix to the consistency you desire..I prefer more on the wetter side, but not watery.
Step 2: Mash banana separately, or in the bowl with the hot oatmeal mix till it’s mixed in well.
Step 3: Put square of chocolate in a cup or bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute.
Step 4: Add to oatmeal, mix in, and eat it up.

The ‘banana bread’ name does not mention the peanut butter for two reasons…one being that the peanut butter is not a dominate flavor, and two being that it seriously tastes like banana bread with hot, melty chocolate chips in it. I think the Nutracleanse is what gives it the ‘bread’ texture.
