Salted Fudge PB2!
This recipe is admittedly fussy when it comes to pairing it with the right oatmeal base (not every recipe enjoys being paired with salt!). I had this on Sweet Potato Fudge Oatmeal, but I could see it working in a few others, too. One that immediately comes to mind is Chocolate Chip Cookie Baked Oatmeal. I love salted chocolate chip cookies. It would be nice as the frosting on top of Brownie Baked Oatmeal as well!
If you don’t have coarse salt, you can try making this with regular table salt, but it’s simply not as good. Salt is super cheap. It’s worth the investment. No need to drop $10 on fancy pink sea flakes. If it’s more than $3, you’re paying too much. 🙂

What you'll need:
- 2 heaping tbsp plain PB2
- 2 tbsp water (plus more as needed)
- 1 and 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
- maple syrup or other sweetener, as desired
- pinch of coarse salt (needs to be coarse!)
- optional: 1/4 tsp coconut oil (adds incredible flavor)
How to make it:
- In a small bowl, add water a little at a time to the PB2. Don't add the water all at once; that way you'll be able to choose the consistency you want.
- If adding optional coconut oil, stir in now.
- Stir in cocoa powder and vanilla extract. If the mixture gets too thick, add a few drops more water (less than a teaspoon!!).
- Taste. If too bitter, add maple syrup a little at a time until you like the taste.
- Stir in a pinch of coarse salt.
- Add to the top of your oatmeal of choice and enjoy!
