I love peanut butter, so any time I see something that is low in calories and has peanut butter in it then I am all for it.  While this recipe is still fairly high in calories and fat, it is obviously better than it would be if you used regular peanut butter instead of the reduced fat kind.

Although this oatmeal did taste pretty good, and was also a fairly nice portion size since it was another "growing oatmeal" recipe, I was a little disappointed in the peanut butter part of it.  I could definitely taste the chocolate in the oatmeal, but could hardly taste the peanut butter at all.  I'm not sure if this is worth the extra calories and fat of the peanut butter in the recipe since you really can't taste it.  I would much rather make the Major Mocha Cappuccino Oatmeal(6 Points+) or the Smores Oatmeal (8 Points+) recipe instead.

So, although this was a tasty recipe and I happily ate it, it did not taste as peanut buttery as I had hoped.  I will have to find another recipe that will satisfy my peanut butter and chocolate cravings better.
