Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

{Gluten and Dairy Free}

I created this oatmeal recipe this morning and was surprised at how well it turned out! The oatmeal was creamy and thick, and it tasted like a rich chocolate dessert, but for breakfast. Although this recipe calls for canned pumpkin, its taste is not detectable. 
So enjoy a dairy and gluten free "dessert" for breakfast!
