Yum! After a tough workout this morning I decided to treat myself with a well-deserved delicious breakfast. Lately, I've been on an oatmeal kick so I decided to put together some of my favorite ingredients (banana, chocolate and peanut butter) into one delicious combo! This recipe takes minutes to make and tastes like a total treat, despite all of its healthy goodness! Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments below!
