This healthy Peppermint Patty Oatmeal tastes like the classic candy in breakfast form! You’ll never want to skip breakfast again!

After making this oatmeal last week, I just knew I had to make another festive version for the holidays.

This healthy Peppermint Patty Oatmeal tastes like the classic candy in breakfast form! You'll never want to skip breakfast again!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the gingerbread right now, but Christmas just isn’t the same without the good ole’ combo of chocolate and peppermint either, aka the peppermint patty. After this post about peppermint got shared over 800,000 times last year, I knew that a peppermint recipe was the way to go. The peppermint patty has a special place in my heart because who can resist the creamy mint filling and the hard sweet dark chocolate coating, literally perfection. Also my Mom’s favorite candy is the peppermint patty and her birthday is the day after Christmas, so this is an ode to her! #bestchildaward

This Peppermint Patty Oatmeal is also an ode to you for when your struggling to get up in the morning. If you know your gonna eat this for breakfast, there is no way that you won’t jump out of the bed to eat this deliciousness for breakfast, I promise!

So enjoy your candy-like tasty, warm, unbelievably healthy, breakfast on a chilly morning while wearing fuzzy socks and sipping some hot coffee, because, doesn’t that sound like a great idea?

    Ok me an mint have been on a bit of a break but I think it’s time to bring it back into the full rotation. I think I had the same peppermint mocha smoothie for a month straight this summer and it just got to be too much! But now I have to have minty chocolate oats!!
