It didn’t happen for me overnight, but over time I have learned to really love meals that center around veggies and protein. Why? Well when I really get serious about how I feel after a meal; specifically my hunger, cravings and energy, I can tell you hands down I feel my best after eating this way! Sure eating cookies and dessert make me feel great temporarily, but I am quickly hungry again. I continue to have cravings for sweet foods and my energy is on the floor. But veggies and protein and I am a non-stop ball of energy.

That doesn’t mean I love eating a plate of steamed veggies and fish though. Quite the opposite actually! Anytime I can satisfy a craving with veggies and protein though I’m over the moon with excitement! Sometimes that means adding a scoop of greens to my brownies like these mint chocolate single serve brownies, but usually that means sneaking cauliflower or zucchini into a typically sweet dish! Like these zucchini chocolate donuts, this pumpkin spice green smoothie, or this vanilla beet smoothie! But for breakfast, I especially love cauliflower oatmeal! Once you try this peanut butter low carb oatmeal, you have to try the other versions as well! Apple cinnamon cauliflower oatmeal and pumpkin pie cauliflower oatmeal.

Why you’ll love this Chocolate Peanut Butter Low Carb Oatmeal

You don’t have to wait for breakfast to enjoy this chocolate peanut butter low carb oatmeal! This is a great lunch or dinner option as well! I don’t know about you but I love breakfast for dinner and the added bonus that this is chocolate. Well, you probably know how I feel about that!

Did you know that a chocolate craving can be caused by low dopamine and serotonin in the body? Dopamine is associated with motivation and being driven. Serotonin is related to feeling comfortable and is responsible for our self esteem. I don’t know about you but if I’m craving chocolate and it can help me feel more driven and more confident, sign me up! Raw cacao is full of phytonutrients, including serotonin, and a compound that can help the body release endorphins and dopamine! This, of course, is not an excuse to go dive into a bag of Hershey Kisses, but it is a great reason to eat this chocolate peanut butter low carb oatmeal on days when you need a little boost!

The base of this recipe is you guessed it – riced cauliflower. I feel like I should be buying stock in this stuff! Make sure you pick up 5-6 bags and make a batch of these low carb cauliflower waffles or low carb cauliflower everything bagels after you enjoy this chocolate peanut butter low carb oatmeal! Because the only thing better than breakfast for dinner is breakfast for dinner multiple nights in a row! You will also need a chocolate protein powder, I used a vegan protein powder but you can use whatever your favorite brand is! Just be sure you start with only 1/2 cup of dairy free milk and add more as it’s needed for your particular brand!
