I’ve been obsessed with breakfast bowls lately! They are such a simple way to combine so many flavours into one delicious bowl – and then you have the best excuse to load up on all your favourite toppings. I’ve been eating tons of oatmeal bowls and rice pudding bowls sprinkled with my favourite fresh fruits, crunchy granola, chopped nuts, drizzles of homemade jam… the toppings are the best part, really 😉
But for this recipe, the toppings definitely come second. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl tastes like DESSERT in a bowl. The first time I made this recipe and dunked a spoon in my blender to give it a taste, I actually audibly breathed, “OHMYGOD” and forced a spoonful into J’s mouth so he could taste it too.
Last week I waxed on about the perfect pairing of peanut butter and banana. Now let’s obsess about peanut butter’s other match made in heaven: JAM.
Peanut butter and jam is a classic pairing. PB&J sandwiches have been stuffed into kids lunch boxes since the beginning of time. It’s one of those classic combinations that is the perfect combination of sweet, salty, creamy, with a hint of peanutty crunch, and is just overall YUMS.
Peanut butter and jam isn’t just a great sandwich – it makes a fun oatmeal! Like eating a sandwich with a spoon! …Is that weird?
Have you ever stopped to consider how many perfect pairings there are with peanut butter?
- Peanut butter and banana
- Peanut butter and chocolate
- Peanut butter and jam
- Peanut butter and honey
- Peanut butter and celery and raisins
Peanut butter, you poly-amorous little minx! 😉
Let’s consider the first perfect pairing: peanut butter and banana. Peanut butter is one of my absolute Favourite Foods. Right up there with avocados, chocolate chips, and pie. I like to eat spoonfuls of peanut butter straight from the jar. You too?
Then you’ll definitely be with me in loving this Peanut Butter Banana Bread.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Squares!
Well that title is a mouthful. 😉
These little beauties are one of the easiest recipes on this site – they require one bowl (it’s actually a pot) and no baking. Just melt the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil over the stove, mix in all the rest of the ingredients, scoop it into a pan, shove it in the fridge – and you’re good!
