Peanut Butter (Chocolate) Banana Baked Oatmeal!

By now everyone knows I’m crazy about The Oatmeal Artist website. I’ve posted  before about how great (and healthy!) these recipes are. And how they turn plain old boring oatmeal into yummy amazingness.

I am constantly trying different recipes from the site straight-up, and I also like to vary things up and mix and match them to make a new combos that suit my tastes too.

The other day I made the Peanut Butter and Banana Baked Oatmeal and it was SO GOOD! I mean it’s peanut butter and banana, how could that NOT be good right?!

013014Today to switch things up, I made the same Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal but added a tablespoon on Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa Powder to it to make it Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal. Such a simple step, but wow did it really give it a yummy chocolatey flavor!
