How To Make Chocolate Oats


Cook the oats with 1.5 cups of water until the oats are fluffy and all the water has disappeared. The best way to do this is cook the oats for 2 minutes in the microwave, then stir oats, then cook again 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 sweetener if using, and stir to combine.
