Peanut Butter Chunky Monkey Baked Oatmeal

Peanut Butter Chunky Monkey Baked Oatmeal: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Most times it is the simple things in life that make me happy. For example when I was meal planning and looked at this recipe I realized I had everything I needed to make it. The only thing I would need was a perfectly ripe banana for the top and that is even optional, I just really felt like adding the banana on top with the drizzles.

I know it may sound weird, but finding a recipe where I do not need to buy a lot of ingredients makes me happy. Less ingredients needed to buy means smaller grocery list which means less time in the grocery store and that all makes me happy.

Hopefully you do not need to buy too many ingredients to make this delicious and hearty breakfast.
