After sharing my recipe for French toast I wanted to share another one of my favourite breakfast recipes. I often make oatmeal for breakfast. Usually, I keep it simple and make it only with coconut milk and some fruit but, this chocolate oatmeal is definitely one of my favourites!
Oats have been eaten and cultivated by humans for thousands of years. Long before it became one of the most popular breakfast dishes, it was an important food source for the poor and animals. Fortunately, oatmeal has lost its stuffy image and you can find healthy but most of all yummy recipes everywhere!
Because oatmeal has a neutral flavour, there is no limit to the amount of variations you can make with it. By adding fruit, nuts, seeds or chocolate to your oatmeal, you can make it a lot tastier. You can use cocoa powder to replace the chocolate in this recipe. To make it a little sweeter, add some banana, honey or another sweetener to taste.
- 40 g oatmeal
- 200 ml milk
- 7-14 g dark chocolate
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Optional: 1 tbsp honey
- Pour the milk into a saucepan and add the chocolate and bring it to a boil.
- Add the oatmeal, cinnamon and honey and let it simmer for 2 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and let the oatmeal sit for 2 minutes.
- Divide over two bowls and serve hot.
