Chocolate Peanut-Butter Oatmeal

Since my surgery I've had some difficulty getting things to move.  I've been through this before.   The general anesthesia and the pain-killers afterwards bind me up, and it takes a good week or two to get things to move smoothly again.

So, I've been hitting the oatmeal in the morning to add additional fiber to get things rolling, and juicing it up a bit by adding ground flax seed.  

This morning I made myself a nice bowl of Chocolate Peanut-Butter Oatmeal.    I added some fresh cut apple and it was delicious.  

In addition to helping with my digestion, adding the Cocoa may actually help with my BMI as well according to this article.

So here's how I made it.  


1/4 cup thick cut oats
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon organic peanut butter
1 medium apple peeled and diced
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup water

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and then microwave for 3 1/2 minutes.

    1. Emily, I'd love to send you my e-mail but prefer to do it privately. Do you have an e-mail address I can contact? You can also just let me know what the link is, and I can try to add it.

  2. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I
    stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be helpful to read content
    from other writers and use a little something from their sites.
