Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana Oatmeal

Chocolate peanut butter and banana is one of my favorite flavor combinations. This breakfast is great any day, or especially when I’m having a flare-up. The oatmeal and banana both help ease diarrhea, the peanut butter is a delicious low-fat protein source, and the cocoa powder has anti-inflammatory properties.
