Chocolate Brownie Oatmeal
Unlike those heavy milk-chocolate indulgences, adding raw, unsweetened cocoa powder makes this dish healthy with tons of antioxidants and polyphenols.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats cooked with 1 1/2 cups of water
- 1 tsp raw, unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup 1% organic milk
- 1 Tbs walnuts
- Stevia or Truvia to taste (I use about 2 packets of Stevia)
- Cook the oats with 1 1/2 cups of water until the oats are fluffy and all the water has disappeared (I do this by cooking it for 2 minutes in the microwave, stirring, and cooking it for 2 more minutes.)
- Add the cocoa powder and cinnamon to the cooked oats while they are still hot.
- Stir until everything is fully combined and your oats have a deep chocolatey color.
- Add the walnuts and the milk (you can add as much milk as you like. I use about 1/2 a cup to give the oats a nice creamy consistency).
- Add the Stevia, and stir to combine until the oats have the consistency you like.
- Enjoy the chocolatey brownie goodness of the oatmeal.
