Chocolate Macaroon Oatmeal

March 20, 2015

I like to eat oatmeal anyway, but considering it's a great food for breastfeeding I've started having it every day.

You can really only have it the same way so many times though, hence my need for chocolate flavored oatmeal this week!

Chocolate Macaroon Oatmeal

serves 1
1 banana, sliced
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer)
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp ground flax seed
1 tsp vanilla extract (I prefer Mexican vanilla)
1 tbsp coconut palm sugar (or whatever sugar you prefer)
1 tbsp coco powder
2 tbsp shredded coconut (I used sweetened)

Combine oats, water, almond milk, banana, chia seed, flax, coconut palm sugar, and coco powder in a small sauce pan and cook at medium heat. Stir often, breaking up the banana, until the mixture comes to a boil. Once it comes to a boil continue cooking for 3-5 minutes until it reaches the consistency you like. (I go longer or for less time depending on how I want my oats that day) Transfer to a bowl and stir in vanilla extract and shredded coconut. 

What's your favorite way to eat oatmeal?
