The Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cup rolled oats cooked with 1.5 cups of water
  2. 1 tsp raw, unsweetened cocoa powder (you can find this just about anywhere, I used cocoa powder from Trader Joe’s in this recipe,
    but I have since found even better raw cocoa powder at Whole Foods that is just delicious)
  3. 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  4. 1/2 cup 1% organic milk
  5. 1 Tbsp walnuts
  6. 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
  7. Honey, Agave, Maple Syrup, or Stevia to taste (I use about 1.5 tsp of honey)

Directions

  1. Cook the oats with 1.5 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.)
  2. Add the cocoa powder and cinnamon to the cooked oats while they are still hot.
  3. Stir until everything is fully combined, and your oats have a deep chocolatey color.
  4. 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)
  5. Add the honey/agave/stevia/maple syrup, and stir to combine until the oats have the consistency you like.
