Chocolate Chip Oatmeal
Cook oats with milk on stove top according to directions on with the oats. Add cocoa powder, nut butter and sweetener as mix starts to thicken. Once the right consistency is reached, turn off the heat and then stir in the chocolate pieces.
- 1/3 cup of oats
1 cup of milk
1 heaped teaspoon of cocoa powder
1 heaped teaspoon of chocolate chips (or broken up chocolate)
1 teaspoon of sweetener (i.e. sugar) - if desired
- 1 teaspoon of peanut butter or other nut butter
Note From Mr Breakfast:
First, I really want to thank Aleatz for submitting this recipe. I made it this morning (June 2013) and loved it. Instead of peanut butter, I used Nutella. Yum! I also increased the amount of oats to 1/2 cup just because I like my oatmeal a little thicker. If using Old Fashioned oats, you bring the milk to a near boil, add the oats, reduce heat to low and cook for about 6 minutes. I'd make this oatmeal again for sure.
You don't necessarily have to make your oatmeal with 1/3 of oats to 1 cup of milk. I personally do it this way. However, I do recommend using milk in this recipe - it adds a creamy texture.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Aleatz for this recipe.
