Whipped Chocolate Chia Banana Oatmeal with Peanut Butter

Posted Apr 26 2011 5:06pm
Fact: My mom is the best mom in the whole wide world.

Me and Mom

There’s no disputing this statement as it is backed by thousands of double-blind, government funded studies.

Don’t believe me? Just look at this complicated graph that proves it.

Satisfied? I thought so.

Now, not only is my mom the best mom in the whole wide world but she is also extremely wise. She edits manuscripts like nobody’s business, bakes artisan bread without recipes, and writes acrostics in her sleep.

Unfortunately, despite this wisdom, there is something that she believes that is very, VERY wrong. My mom thinks that peanut butter and chocolate should not be eaten together. (I believe I just heard a collective foodie gasp.)

Now I could mail Mom boxes of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with mysterious notes that warn her that she must change her mistaken ways. However, as she is such a wonderful mom, I thought that the loving thing to do would be to create some fantastic recipes that convince her that chocolate and peanut butter were indeed made for one another.

As this is the week of the of the chia seed here on FHF and I am on a quest to mix up my breakfast routine, I decided to create a delicious oatmeal recipe that marries peanut butter and chocolate in holy matrimony. As no breakfast is complete without banana, I whip a banana with the chia seeds, cocoa, and almond milk to create a delicious, custard-like texture.

Enjoy!
