Chocolate and Peanut Butter

Did I catch your attention?

If this is one of your favorite combos, you’re my new best friend. I have a feeling there’s going to be a lot of best friends out there.

I included this combo in my breakfast after a 20 minute session of light yoga. After yesterday’s 3 miler, I knew I was in need of some deep stretching this morning. Holy glutes, I definitely need to stretch more often!

P.S. If you haven’t seen this amazing dog do aerobics…yes aerobics, watch this now. Too cute.

This morning, I made a breakfast bake based on Ashley’s amazing ideas. I took one and adapted to my tastes. Chocolate AND peanut butter for breakfast? Sounds fine with me.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bake

  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 c. oat flour (I ground up steel cut oats until it was powdery)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tbsp. dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. PB2
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk

Mix together dry ingredients. Whisk in egg, vanilla and milk. Pour into greased ramekin and bake for 30 minutes at 350F.

Good. Lord. This was amazing.

 

This bake was enormous! I could barely finish it! Ok, gotta head to work!

There’s still time to enter my giveaway. You’ll definitely want to get in on this one! Tweet about it and spread the word!

What’s your favorite combo? Peanut butter and chocolate? Chocolate and caramel?

    I’m a huuuge fan of vanilla and blueberries. I have no idea why..maybe its because i’m really picky about food colors not clashing and I think that there is something really pretty about vanilla and blue. I’m a wierdo ..

    First time reader… I am hooked already!! This looks awesome! Chocolate, PB & banana… Who could ask for anything more… Did I miss where you said what the sauce was that topped this?

    • Alexa says:

      I don’t think I posted the sauce…sorry! It was simply some PB2 mixed with water drizzled on top. Anything you dream of would work, though. So glad you like it here! Hope you stick around :)
