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.

Yield: 1 serving

      • Jacinda… Your oatmeals are the BEST! Until this morning your Peaches & Cream was my fav, but THIS! This recipe is perfection for this serious chocolaholic. So many THM recipes are too heavy on the cocoa. Your proportions are perfect. This is seriously delicious. Thank you!

  2. I mix all together put in a bowl microwave for 1 minute stir then microwave again for 1 minute not bad at all. I used 1 1/2 tsp of pyure maybe 2 tsp next time

    • Did you cook it in the microwave? I did and that was my result. I ended up adding a 1/2 scoop of protein powder because I wasnt sure this would keep me full and then I added a 1/4 tsp of glucci and microwaved it for another minute. Perfect!!! And absolutely delicious and soooo filling!

  3. SO yummy!! I made with previously soaked and then dehydrated steel cut oats, and because I can’t just make a recipe as is, I added dashes of butter and vanilla flavoring and 1 tablespoon gelatin for extra protein and it made it feel like there was butter in it!! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

  4. We’ve had this like 4x in the past week…soooo good. Hubby loves it! I struggle getting my E’s in but this makes it very EASY! And, it’s so filling. Thanks Jacinda!

  5. Thanks for this recipe! I don’t even like traditional oatmeal, but I tried it because it was chocolate and peanut butter! It is so yummy!!! Like you, I struggle with E breakfasts and snacks and I’m thrilled to add this to my routine.

  6. This was yummy! However, I don’t see how it stays under the 5 grams of fat to be an E when almost 5 grams of fat are in the nut milk plus more in the peanut flour. Unless you consider the peanut flour the protein source and you don’t count that fat? Which I do NOT understand….why not just count all the fat and be less confusing?? 🙂

    • My almond milk is 2.5 fat grams per cup and a 1/4 cup of peanut flour is 4 grams. There is only 2 TBSP of the peanut flour so it should be fine. I am guessing 3-4 grams total.

    • Hi Tina and Kari! You don’t count the fat that naturally occurs in grains, and almond milk is considered a Fuel Pull, so the only think you need to watch here is you peanut flour!

      Reply
      • So some fats you count and some you don’t, same with carbs…can you please enlighten me here? I always just count ALL of them because it just confuses me.

        Reply
        • Kari, this plan was never meant to be complicated. E’s and S’s used to just be determined by ingredients, but some people begged for numbers and rules, so they came up with guidelines….one of those is to not count the fat in grains in an E meal or your FP protein source.

  7. I’m making this for the first time but I’m concerned about the amount of Xylitol. 2 tablespoons seems excessive. Is Xylitol considered to be less sweet than other sugar substitutes? How much should I use if using Pyure or even Super Sweet?

  8. 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!

  9. 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=).

  10. 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 😉

  11. 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!

  12. 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?
