Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal For One

Who says you can't have chocolate for breakfast?

For whatever reason, the earlier I wake up, the hungrier I am. As a consistent 6 "a.m.-er," I'm always searching for something fast and filling for breakfast. The only thing that satisfies this growing (still hoping) girl is a big bowl of oatmeal, and why not a bit of chocolate? Here's to starting the day right!

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup milk (skim or plant based)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 eggwhite
1 tbsp unsalted peanut butter
1 tbsp ground flaxmeal
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup
Banana + Nuts (optional)

1. Combine oats and milk in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and then lower to medium heat, stirring occasionally.
2. Add the cocoa powder and vanilla to the pan and mix.
3. Stir in the eggwhites and continue to mix thoroughly.
4. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and cook until mixture thickens. Top with a chopped banana and nuts, and serve!
