This is the kind of porridge that makes you want to do something very bad. In my case, it makes me want to put a captioned gif below this description because words can’t adequately describe my feelings. But I’ll do my best.
As I’ve discussed before, I am OBSESSED with peanut butter and chocolate. I saw a picture of porridge with honey and vanilla the other day on Instagram, so I thought, why not add peanut butter into the mix? I chopped up some sea salt dark chocolate (I’ve been really into Alter Eco lately) and put it on top of the porridge with strawberries.
“This is really good,” I said to no one after I took my first bite. It was so good that I had to stop in the middle of eating it, not so much because I was full but because I had to assess the situation. Salty peanut butter, sweet vanilla and berries, honey, tangy dark chocolate…what. is. happening.
In other news…it’s the weekend! I am very excited about it (in case you can’t tell). It’s supposed to be cold and rainy in St. Louis, so my days will probably be filled with lots of yoga, indoor plant shopping, elaborate breakfasts, and anything else that I can cook up.
Here’s a good song for those activities, or for moments when you can’t breathe because you’ve eaten waaay too much peanut butter porridge.
PB Vanilla Honey Porridge with Berries and Dark Chocolate (from me, to you)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1-2 Tbsp honey (depending on how sweet you like things)
1 heaping Tbsp of crunchy peanut butter
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
strawberries and roughly chopped sea salt dark chocolate for topping
Bring the rolled oats and almond milk to a boil in a pan over high heat. Once it’s boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
Stir in the honey, vanilla extract, and peanut butter, adding more milk if the mixture is too thick. Top with berries and dark chocolate. Enjoy!
