Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Oatmeal | THM: E

Save for later!

One of the most wonderful things about the More Or Less Challenge is that it has pushed me to experiment with more E and dairy-free recipes! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Oatmeal nails both of those goals and it is so incredibly delicious, that I’ve declared it to be my go-to E breakfast from now on!

There are only 6 ingredients in this breakfast, and none of them are “special” or expensive:

Can I just take a moment here to express how thankful I am that defatted peanut flour is now a common thing? Even in Canada, you can find a sugar-free version locally! My favorite brand is Tru-Nut(no sugar added), but I also use the PB & Me brand which you can find at Wal-Mart. Both of these products feature peanuts as the only ingredient. Of course, Trim Healthy Mama has a superior brand of peanut flour, too, but it’s not as accessible to me.

Trim Healthy Mama Defatted Peanut Flour

Defatted peanut flour is an amazing ingredient. It’s the result of peanuts being processed into a flour after the fat has been removed. When mixed with a wet, low-fat ingredient like 0% Greek yogurt, water, or a nut milk, it provides the same peanut butter flavor, but with a much more concentrated level of protein. Since defatted peanut flour is so low in fat and high in protein, its an ideal ingredient for Trim Healthy Mama-friendly Fuel Pull and E meals.

PSA: my favorite Fuel Pull snack using defatted peanut flour is the PB & J version of Peanut Butter Cheesecake In a Bowl!

But back to this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Oatmeal! It only takes about 7 minutes to make from start to finish, so it’s almost as fast as overnight oats! Unlike overnight oats though, this is a warm oatmeal dish and totally tastes like a freshly baked cookie! 

You can enjoy it with a glass of low-fat kefir for more even protein.

  1. I really dislike oatmeal but tried it anyway. Wow. I really liked it! I had to add a bit more gentle sweet (1/2 tsp)for my taste but it was yummy!

  2. This is delicious! I doubled it for my husband and I for breakfast and we both enjoyed it! I did add an extra tablespoon of sweetener and it was perfect. Thank you for another wonderful recipe=).

  3. Oh. My. Word.

    This. This is the best oatmeal I’ve ever had IN MY LIFE and I don’t really love oatmeal.
    Thanks for another weapon in my fight against sugar and candy!! Love recipes that double as a dessert 😉

  4. Perfect and I usually dont care for oatmeal. I doubled the recipe, microwaved for 4 mins (stirred half way thru) and then enjoyed. Thanks for posting!

  5. I know this is going to sound weird, but I have not learned to like the texture of cooked oats. But I really like no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. Could I stir all this together without cooking the oats and eat it while they are still firm?
