I eat oatmeal every single morning. I am not exaggerating, I really do.
When I realized I wanted to start doing a couple eCookbooks I knew almost immediately what the first one was going to be. Oatmeal!
These Chocolate Cherry Breakfast Cookies are a healthier morning treat. However, there are some days I want something different, something delicious and of course decadent WITH chocolate. This Chocolate Peanut Butter is that choice. It’s my “I’m feeling fancy and I know it” breakfast.
is oatmeal and oats gluten-free?
- Yes and no.
- Oats are naturally gluten-free but there is a caveat. Oats are generally on the same line as other floured grains. To avoid cross contamination issues it is best to purchase gluten-free oats.
You truly cannot go wrong with creamy peanut butter oozing out. I mean can you? My professional opinion, peanut butter and chocolate are an epic duo you cannot go wrong with them together.
(I actually made chocolate peanut butter granola earlier. It’s a winner.)
When I first made this I took one bite and knew it was my new favorite weekend breakfast. I truly ran upstairs to Roland still sleeping and made him try it. What a lucky girl I am, he puts up with me.
I’ve struggled with eating healthy with weekend breakfasts. Even more so, now that I’m gluten-free say goodbye to cinnamon rolls. Which use to be my favorite for a weekend treat. Grab myself a chemical filled tube of cinnamon rolls and frosting. My how my life has changed over these years.
What could you use instead of applesauce?
banana puree or swapping for melted butter could work also. 🙂
This looks amazing! What size ramekin do you use?
To be honest I’m not quite sure. It held about 1.5 cups I’d gather. You can use any size you like pretty much. You just may have to adjust the cooking times a bit.
I have been making this for a few years now and I still love it!!! I might sneakily add a few chocolate chips inside and on the top too.
It is yummy and i love it for breakfast, lunch and dessert!
