Dessert for Breakfast? Chocolate Oatmeal!

The kids have this for breakfast several days each week! They have yet to tire of it! So simple, nutritious, and sweet!

Chocolate Oatmeal

1 c Old-Fashioned Oats
water or almond milk
2 ripe bananas
1/4 c natural peanut butter
1-3 Tbsp ground flax seed
1-3 Tbsp chia seeds
1-3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa (omit for "PB oatmeal")
a few semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large glass bowl, add oats and cover with water or almond milk.
Cook for ~3 min in microwave.
Add remaining ingredients: bananas, peanut butter, flax, chia, and cocoa.
Mash banana and stir everything together.
Add milk if it seems dry or too hot for kids.
Top with a few chocolate chips, and ENJOY!

This is a breakfast high in fiber and healthy fat, as well as some protein, so it will keep you satisfied and energized all morning!
