Mini Chef left for school a very happy camper the other morning, and it was all because of this one, simple recipe.

Talk about starting your morning off right! He definitely left for school with a spring in his step and gnawing concern that mom had lost her marbles. Chocolate and peanut butter for breakfast? I mean, come on… how did that happen exactly?

But I guarantee you, he didn’t argue. He just looked at me sideways, slowly took the bowl I was handing him and backed away to the kitchen table. I’ve never seen him eat anything so fast in his life. I think he figured I might come to my senses half way through breakfast and take away his delicious meal. Not that I have ever, nor would I ever do that, but his little brain wasn’t thinking about mom’s track record. He just had a laser focus on his bowl of oatmeal. Not even the dog could manage to convince him to share, which I’m thankful for because, well you know. Dogs and chocolate don’t mix. But Shasta sure did try!

I swear the dogs and my little boy have the same approach to food. Eat it fast while you can get it and take no prisoners in the process. LOL!! He REALLY loved this oatmeal!

At any rate, I think it’s pretty obvious by now that I’ll be making this a few times in the coming week. Mini Chef might have me committed! Ha!

But in all seriousness, this is very clean and healthy, while still offering amazing flavor. But that’s the whole point of this blog right? To prove that healthy food tastes amazing!

If you like peanut butter cups, this is definitely the clean eating breakfast for you!

You’re welcome. 🙂
