Oh yes!  
I don't know about you, but I used to loooove York peppermint patties - still do, as a matter of fact :)  I always see them at stores and always really want one, but my inner health nut always steers me away.  But now, that's perfectly fine, because I can enjoy the same flavors whenever I want, and I won't upset my inner health nut one bit.  Actually, I will bring joy to my inner health nut.  So, its a win-win situation!


Peppermint Patty Oatmeal

Ingredients:
1 serving of cooked oatmeal (I used steel cut oatmeal)
Cooking liquid for cooking your oatmeal (I used half water and half almond milk)
A handful of chocolate chips (I used 60%)
Peppermint extract (about 1/4 teaspoon - I didn't measure)
Almond milk, for drizzling

Directions:
Combine the freshly cooked oatmeal with the chocolate chips and peppermint extract.  Poor the mixture into a bowl and drizzle with plenty of almond milk.
Picture
Super simple to make, and, above all, super delicious!
So you can now pass up those peppermint patties lingering in the grocery store hallways, and make peppermint patty oatmeal instead!  You get the same flavor, but in a much healthier fashion.  Don't you love it when things work out like that?


The daily question:  Do you like peppermint patties?  Have you ever turned candy into oatmeal?

Peppermint patties are one of my favorite candies for sure. I love anything mint! Your breakfast looks delicious.

And I have Reeses oatmeal quite frequently-- banana oats with PB and dark chocolate chips :)
