Blogging Marathon# 35: Week 3/ Day 3 Theme: Kid's Delight -- Cooking with Whole Grains Dish: Breakfast -- Chocolate Oatmeal Today's recipe is a very simple breakfast dish that can be whipped up in just few minutes. My son loves oatmeal and he loves chocolate, so I thought why not put them both together. A quick google search landed me at this recipe by Chocolate covered Katie.

Ingredients

  • ricotta
  • 1½ cups ricotta
  • a pinch Salt
  • 1 ~ 2 tsps Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cocoa
  • ricotta
  • chocolate dry fruit

Method

  1. The night before you want to have chocolate oats for breakfast, combine oats, milk and salt in a small saucepan and cook for 4~5 minutes until the mixture thickens and the oats are almost cooked.
  2. Let the mixture cool down for 10~15 minutes. Then refrigerate uncovered overnight.
  3. This first step can be done in the microwave as well, just cook oats, milk and salt for 3 minutes and then for another additional 1 minute for the milk to be almost absorbed. Leave the bowl in the microwave for 5 minutes, then refrigerate overnight (uncovered!!)
  4. In the morning, add a splash of milk, if oats look too dry. Add cocoa powder, sweetener, cinnamon and return to the stove (or the microwave). Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes on the stove (or 1~2 minutes in the microwave). Add the toppings and enjoy!!
