Turn breakfast into a meal everyone’s going to love (seriously, who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter)! This Instant Pot Chocolate Peanut Butter Quick Oats recipe is so quick and easy, there’s no reason not to make it.
Being a newfound peanut butter fan, I now catch myself trying to add it to everything. I am not sure why, but this is a pregnancy craving that just kind of stuck around. I mean, I never even really enjoyed peanut butter before becoming pregnant with my second one, so I am not really sure what’s happening here!
I do have to say, not everyone in my house is as thrilled about peanut butter as I am. But, chocolate on the other hand is always a home run around here. That’s where this Instant Pot Chocolate Peanut Butter Quick Oats was born! Well, to be honest, it was kind of born out of laziness too..
During the weekdays breakfast is usually a bowl of cereal for my little guy and a bagel for my husband. I always feel bad sending them off that way, but I just have so many things to do in the morning (especially with a newborn), breakfast is just not something I can add to my proverbial plate. With these Instant Pot Chocolate Peanut Butter Quick Oats, I can actually get them out the door with something filling and relatively healthy!
I know there are a bunch of steel cut oats recipes floating around, but I never have steel cut oats laying around. I do however, usually have quick oats (for making no bake cookies). And, after trying to look up Instant Pot recipes for quick oats,, I came up empty handed. I pretty much experimented until I came up with something I truly loved! I even turned my family into fans.
These Instant Pot Chocolate Peanut Butter Quick Oats are just the perfect blend of creamy peanut butter and delicious chocolate. They are pure belly filling goodness. Next time you need a quick breakfast that is sure to win over the family, you have got to try this!
