Chocolate Oatmeal

Chocolate Oatmeal

35 g        Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1/2 T      Chia
14 g        Almonds, ground
1/2 T      Cocoa
20 g       Chocolate Chips, 51% cocoa
3/4 C      Water
1/4 t       Vanilla Extract

  1. Put the cocoa and chocolate and almonds in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Put the oatmeal, chia seed, and water in a large microwave safe bowl (6 cups, at least – it seems overkill, but I have never had my oatmeal boil over in the microwave).
  3. Microwave for 2:30 on high power.
  4. Pour oatmeal into the bowl with the chocolate, add vanilla, add milk to taste, stir.

I prepare oatmeal packs ahead of time – one container of oatmeal and chia, one of chocolate and cocoa, and one of the almonds.I measure out the vanilla last minute.

The advantage of this division is so I can make different flavor combinations. Sometimes I use walnuts instead of almonds. And sometimes I’m in the mood for cinnamon raisin instead of chocolate.

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Flavor

¼ C Raisins
½ T Brown Sugar
¼ t Cinnamon

Prepare as chocolate oatmeal, but add the above ingredients to the oatmeal before microwaving and omit the chocolate and cocoa.
