Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter Oatmeal

by Erin

How do you like your warm oatmeal on a cold morning? How about apples, cinnamon, raisins, and peanut butter? Dig into this bowl and maybe even drizzle some chocolate on top.

Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter Oatmeal 1

After the first successful variation of my dad’s apple harvest oatmeal turned into pumpkin pecan oatmeal I decided to try my hand at it again. Being Saturday I am sure you can guess specifically what flavor I went for… peanut butter of course! But the chocolate part of today’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Saturday get’s benched for cinnamon and raisin. I used cinnamon raisin peanut butter for this oatmeal because I thought it would be the perfect peanut butter flavor for such a recipe. Turns out it says right on the jar that it is perfect for oatmeal, which I noticed mid-way through cooking it! Funny how things work out.

Alright I did let chocolate play a little bit with a drizzle of chocolate syrup on top. Ohio State plays Minnesota at noon today so I had to throw on at least a little chocolate to officially call it another successful #PBChocSat!

Looks like one tasty breakfast bowl! I always add peanut butter to my oatmeal (or cereal…) so I can vouch for that :)
