Dark chocolate and peanut butter oatmeal is one of my ultimate favorite breakfast to have. This oatmeal is not sweet but healthy, nutritious and  very felling.

Dark chocolate and peanut butter oatmeal
Welcome dark chocolate and peanut butter oatmeal. Why haven’t I made this before? I HAVE NO  IDEA, but what I really know for sure is that I will be making this A LOT!!

This is the best oatmeal I have ever had, and my 6 year old son thinks so as well. I think I am going to start making different types of oatmeal versions. The next one to come, and soon, is an APPLE PIE OATMEAL version. I have already thought about the method and ingredients so stay tuned for that one as well.

I think this is a super duper healthy breakfast. If you like, you can also make a little bit more and keep in the fridge for the next mornings to come. Just add a bit of soy milk or regular milk and heat in the microwave or stove, voila!!

By the way, how do you guys like the nutrition facts of the recipes so far? I am a little bit skeptical about it since I do not go much for calories. I am not the food police, over all we try to have a well balance healthy diet and exercise and that seems to be sufficient for us.

I will keep them for now, just for those people that need them :-)

Anyhow, TRY THIS RECIPE, you will not be sorry. It is a great way to start your day.


The mixture is really dark because of the dark cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips. It was also sort of thick but I then added a bit more soy milk :-) Much better!!

This is the oatmeal after adding a little extra splash of soy milk.

This dark chocolate and peanut butter oatmeal is to die for. I will be making an apple pie version very soon, so stay tuned for that one.

Miryam"s original recipe

Yield: 4-6 servings

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 1/4 cups gluten free old fashioned oats
  • 3 1/4 cups almond  milk
  • 1-2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup organic smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tbs dark cocoa powder
  • 4 tbs dark chocolate chips, vegan
  • 2 tbs flax seed meal, optional, wheat germ or oat bran will also work well


Place all ingredients In a heavy saucepan and cook over medium to high heat, stirring frequently until it boils. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until milk has been absorbed and the oats have softened.

Served with extra chocolate chips, almonds and extra soy milk if desired.

I have not tried making this in a microwave but I am sure it will also work well as long as you stir in between.

Nutrition facts are calculated based on the recipe giving 4 servings. This is high in iron, and manganese. Calculations were done using 2 tablespoons of sugar in the oatmeal.


  1. Holy moly…this looks amazinggggg! :D

    Chocolate & Carrots

  2. Looks very tasty. I mix all kinds of stuff into oatmeal: usually apples, bananas, cinnamon and cardamon are my baseline, i’ve also thrown in goji berries, sunflower seeds – but have not yet tried chocolate- looking forward to that! (but have made meusli with cocoa in the warmer months and it was great)
    p.s. i used your valentine’s cookie recipe to make easter cookies last week and they are wonderful – almost taste like shortbread! thank you!

  3. Bubumotherof2,

    I just love this oatmeal. I am going to make other versions soon but the next one that I really want to try is an apple pie version. I am sure bananas, nuts and dry fruits are also awesome with oatmeal.

    I am glad you like the recipe for the cookies :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Nutrition facts: Thank you so much! I am a type 1 diabetic and I have to match my insulin dose to how much carb I am eating, exactly how many grams of carb. So for me the nutrition facts are not judgmental or “policing” but helping me know how to keep myself healthy. While I do calculate carbs on my own, since so much is at stake, it is helpful to know how someone else counted it, double checking is good! Especially if its something I’ve never eaten before and thus have no idea how to count it. Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

  5. this looks so good, omg, i’ve made chocolate peanut butter oatmeal, but man, not like this. this is like DESSERT. gorgeous pictures!

  6. Joselyn,

    I know that for diabetics carbs are very important. I am glad you are able to use them, this is one of the only times where I think having nutrition facts is crucial as diabetics can make their calculations and figure out how many carbohydrate exchanges they are consuming.

    I am glad someone is using them :-)
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. This looks so delicious! I’ve made chocolate oats before, but I need to do it again soon. I’m wondering if oatmeal for dinner would be acceptable, haha.

  8. I’ve never had oatmeal before. It kind of seems like soggy bread to me, but this right here looks like delicious soggy bread. :)

    I’m always interested in the nutritional facts of a recipe, but I never consider not making something because of them. They’re just interesting. Like, “Ooh… this has a lot of protein or fiber. Nice!” but not, “OH NO! CALORIES!” It’s nice of you to provide them for the diabetics. :)

    • Texanerin,

      You need to try this, it is fantastic. It maybe soggy a bit but nevertheless delicious ;-) I do agree with you when it comes to eating, I won’t stop eating it based on the calories. I just wouldn’t eat it all the time or a bunch of it, I would probably even healthfied it anyways :-)

  9. Hi there Ive just recently discovered your blog and I do love it!! For this recipe I do wonder how it can be called super duper healthy when almost half the calories come from fat?

  10. Nancyandnic,

    Fat is not all bad. BAD FATS ARE SATURATED FATS PLUS TRANS FATS (HYDROGENATED FATS). There are good ones such as polysaturated and monosaturated fats. If you look at the nutrition facts there are only 4.4 grams coming from saturated fat and the remaining which are 16.8 grams are good fats so this is not bad, it is good. Plus the grade for the recipe is A-, if all of the fat was coming from the saturated type this would have not gotten an A- grading!!

    People get concentrated on seeing that the fat content is large and then just assume that the recipe maybe bad, but you have to deeply analyze what the fat composition of the recipe may be. If all, or most of all, is coming from saturated fat, then it is bad, which is not the case here.

    If you want to decrease the saturated fat amt here just decrease the amt of chocolate chips to half in the recipe and you will have less saturated fat, 2.2 gr to be exact :-) The carb content will also go down.

    To be exact there are only 40 calories coming from saturated fat.

    I am glad you found my blog. Hope you keep coming back.

  11. Thanks, I never noticed the grading on the label, must pay more attention.

    Of course I’ll be back, I like a lot of your recipes.

  12. This is literally one of the best things I have ever seen. Yum.

  13. I love reading blogs with healthy and exciting recipe. You can see how healthy person makes creative and exciting healthy food. Good job!


  14. How do you make 1 serving? I’m the only one who eats oatmeal here, lol.

  15. Hi… Was wondering about the type of oats used here… Can I use regular quick cook oats or should I used rolled oats? Cos the latter does take longer to cook but is way healthier . And another question .. I have flax seed powder in d fridge , is it the same as the meal version U mentioned? Sorry! Not really familiar with these ingredients ! Thanks!
