Ready for this? Yes, I think you are.
Chocolate Oatmeal...see? I knew you'd be ready. ;-)
It's simple. It's quick. And, it's yummy. Too good to be true.
What else could you possibly want from your morning bowl of oats?
We like ours topped with chopped pecans and craisins.
Sometimes, the kids will even ask for chocolate chips ~ dear me!
Any way you serve them, they will be a hit ~ I'm sure of it. :)
Chocolate Oatmeal ~
Originally found here...adaptations by moi.
4 cups water
2 cups milk (you can substitute almond milk)
2 1/2 cups rolled oats (I use organic, old fashioned)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1/2 cup granulated sugar (I use evaporated cane juice)
1 tsp sea salt (or, any salt you prefer)
2 tsp vanilla extract (I use pure)
Bring water, milk, sea salt, and oats to boil over medium heat.
Stir often so the oats do not stick to the bottom of your pan.
Using a whisk, add in the sugar and the sifted cocoa powder.
Whisk together until smooth, remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla extract.
Cover the oatmeal and let stand for about 15 to 20 minutes to finish cooking.
The longer it sits, the thicker it will get ~ I've left ours as long as 30 minutes.
Stir well prior to serving. Serves 5 or 6 generously. Adjust accordingly.
Happy breakfast to you!
