I probably shouldn’t be posting this recipe right now. 1) It was 70 degrees out today. Not necessarily hot chocolate weather… 2) I shouldn’t have even played around with this recipe today as I’m supposed to be studying for finals.
But in my defense, 1) peanut butter and chocolate conquers all and should be enjoyed in any weather and 2) I needed to make this today precisely because it’s finals time. Plus I’ve just finished my seminar paper. I feel a tiny celebration is in order. 3) I just dug out my holiday mug this weekend, so it was begging to be filled.
There. 3 reasons why I should bets 2 reasons why I shouldn’t. I’m clearly in the right 😉
Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
1 and 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 and 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp coconut sugar, honey, or pure maple syrup
1/2 tbsp peanut butter
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
pinch of stevia
pinch of salt
Whisk all ingredients together in a small pot. Place over low heat until peanut butter is melted throughout and cocoa powder is no longer clumping.
