Dessert-y Oatmeal

Oatmeal doesn't have to suck.

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 Tbs (or more) nut butter, I used peanut butter
2 Tbs (or to taste) Agave or sweetener of choice
Handful of Dandies (optional)
Handful of peanuts (optional)

Place oats and water in a bowl bigger than you think you need. Microwave until oats are the consistency you like. You may need to add more liquid, and I'd use plant milk for that. Stir in your nut butter and sweetener until combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir until swirled in (or until combined, whichever you prefer). Add your peanuts and/or Dandies if using. My Dandies melted just fine on top of the hot oatmeal-- I didn't need to put it back in the microwave.
