Peanut Butter and Chocolate Steel-Cut Oatmeal
It’s a lot easier to get out of bed in the morning when breakfast is this peanut butter and chocolate oatmeal from Autumn Calabrese’s FIXATE cookbook. Autumn combined hearty steel-cut oats with all-natural peanut butter and Vegan Chocolate Shakeology for a protein boost, but she didn’t stop there! This energizing breakfast gets even more tantalizing flavor from cinnamon, rum extract, and fresh berries. This is 258 calories worth waking up for!
