Chocolate Oats | Dark Chocolate Oatmeal

It's common knowledge that I love chocolates, I also love oats! This is one delicious way to have oats in the morning. Normally I have my oats as a porridge, once in a while I indulge with loads of chocolate. My kids never eat oats but when they saw the chocolate brown color in this bowl, they were tempted to try some. So there is hope to include oats in their diet :)

Notes
1. Instead of cocoa powder and sugar, I some times use my hot chocolate mixture. Check this post on how to make the hot chocolate powder.
2. You can top it with some nuts too.
3. You can add fruits like banana, grapes, raisins too with this.
4. Oats gets thickened with time, if it's gets thick, use the extra 1/2 cup of milk.
5. Dry roasting the oats is optional, it prevents the oats from being sticky. 


Until next time,
