I have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in my freezer.
These are Maxine’s, and it was her idea to put them in the freezer. I think there is something programmed into women from birth to know that chocolate + peanut butter are best when cold.
I will not eat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for breakfast, but I totally could.
Good thing they aren’t mine. And good thing I also have frozen bananas in my freezer.
Because frozen bananas + oats + cocoa powder are the start of something magical.
Plus some hemp seeds for protein, they add a nice nutty flavor too.
Into the food processor! Presto! Chango! Chocolato! Coldo!
With the last of the almond butter.
It’s cold and sweet and chocolatey and with nut butter in the middle, it’s almost like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup for breakfast. No guilt, no chocolate stains on my fingers or in the corners of my mouth.
(well, maybe in the corner of my mouth.)
Now I’ve got food processor mess to clean up, but at least there are no wrappers to throw away or kids crying because mom ate her peanut butter cups for breakfast.
