Rich, Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal

by Mimi Levin, Tastemaker in Residence


1 Tbsp. cocoa Powder (I used Hershey’s Special Dark) 
¼ tsp. vanilla extract 
¼ tsp. cinnamon 
1 cup rolled oats 
1 ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
Sweetener of your choice (I used Stevia, but you can use coconut sugar or cane sugar) 
1 banana 
1 Tbsp. chocolate chips (I used Lily’s All Natural Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips) 

Combine cocoa powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, almond milk, and oats in a pot and cook over low. Stir until oatmeal is heated through (This should take 5 minutes). Top with sliced banana, chocolate chips, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy!
