If you've been in a rut with your morning oats and want something different but not go over the top and get off track with your healthy eating groove, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal is a must-try for breakfast! It's vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and has no added sugar.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup steel cut (or Irish) oats, use gluten-free if gluten-sensitive
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp carob powder
  • 2 dates, pitted and diced
  • 1 banana, sliced or chopped
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter (with no added sweetener or oil)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk


Bring water and steel-cut oats to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20–30 minutes uncovered until oats are cooked. 

Stir in carob powder until well incorporated.

Before serving, warm peanut butter in the microwave for 15–20 seconds to soften.

Transfer oats to two individual bowls and top with dates, diced or sliced banana, chia seeds, peanut butter, and unsweetened almond milk. Enjoy!
