Crockpot Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal

In case it isn't yet obvious, I kind of love oatmeal.  What's more, I love trying to invent "new" combinations.

This one?  Not very imaginative.  But a peanut butter cup for breakfast sounded good.

Word of warning, this isn't overly sweet, so if you like a bit of a sweeter oatmeal, I would add in maybe a teaspoon or 2 of honey or pure maple syrup.  It does have a light sweetness, especially when you get a chocolate chip!

It is warm and creamy and comforting, a great weekend morning breakfast!

Also, this could definitely be made on the stove top, I just love my little mini Crockpot so much! It also could easily be doubled or tripled!

Crockpot Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal 
(Serves 1)

1/2 cup of oats
1 cup unsweetened almond / coconut milk (or milk of choice)
2 tbsp. PB2 (or 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp. mini semisweet chips

Combine oats, milk, PB2, vanilla extract and 2 tsp. of the chocolate chips in the crockpot bowl.  Stir, and cook for an hour, checking after about a half hour to give it a stir.

Once done, top with remaining chocolate chips.
