This recipe for Creamy Oats with Peanut Butter Crunch is a delectable conundrum — are they overnight oats? Is it oatmeal? Is it a really thick shake? Or a smoothie bowl?
Call it whatever you want, but the words “delightfully delicious” should be in the mix.
These creamy oats are somewhere between overnight oats and a smoothie bowl — we blended Snickerdoodle Shakeology with dry oats and cottage cheese for a smooth, thick, creamy base.
Then we heated up some coconut oil and stirred in peanut butter powder to make a melty peanut butter “sauce” for a topping and chopped peanuts for a contrasting crunch. (Is your mouth watering yet? It should be.)
Indulge in a feel-good superfood dessert that tastes just like cinnamon-sugar cookies.
