Hot Chocolate Oatmeal Is Here To Make Your Mornings Way More Delicious
Chocolate Oatmeal Bowls
I haven’t always loved hot oatmeal. I still don’t always love hot oatmeal. But. If there just happens to be a lot of chocolate in my hot oatmeal? I really like hot oatmeal.
Makes 2 servings
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 2 cups milk (cow’s, almond, or coconut), divided
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Pinch of ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional, or to taste)
- 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped, plus extra for garnish
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a saucepan, combine the oats and 1½ cups of the milk and place over medium-low heat. Add the salt and cinnamon and stir to combine. Cook, stirring often, for 15 minutes, or until the oats are super creamy. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cocoa, maple syrup, chocolate, and remaining ½ cup milk. Stir in the vanilla.
Serve with extra chopped chocolate on top.
