Chocolate Oatmeal

If this cocoa-infused bowl of oatmeal doesn’t get kids to eat their hot cereal, nothing will! It’s the perfect decadent bowlful on a snowy morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup vanilla nondairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Shredded coconut (optional)
  • Vegan chocolate chips (optional)
  1. Combine the oats, salt, water, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and gently simmer for 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the cocoa powder and maple syrup. If the oatmeal is too thick, add a little more milk or water to taste.
  3. Top each serving with shredded coconut (I use about 1 teaspoon per serving) and sprinkle with vegan chocolate chips for an extra decadent treat!
