Hello friends! How is it already the end of March!? It is still cold and dreary here so I have been craving lots of hot oatmeal. I love peppermint anytime of year and have paired it with mocha to create the Peppermint Mocha Oatmeal.
Life has been super crazy lately. Which is why I haven’t been present here much. My work has had crazy deadlines. I enjoy it so much and have been having fun with the project I am working on. On the other hand, I do wish I had a better work life balance and less stress. The great news is this Peppermint Mocha Oatmeal comes together super quick for a hearty breakfast which is perfect for busy lives.
I love that this warm bowl of coziness comes together super fast in the mornings. The espresso powder gives a nice morning pick me up. The cacao is packed with antioxidants. The peppermint adds a refreshing flavor. The fiber in the oats help keep me full throughout the morning. I usually eat this with whatever nuts I have around as well. They add protein and healthy fat.
This Peppermint Mocha Oatmeal would also make a great snack. I am a snack queen. I usually eat breakfast between 6 and 7am so I need a snack to make it to lunch around noon time. Are you a snacker? What is your favorite snack. My go to morning snack is usually just some fruit.
