Chocolate Oatmeal with Chocolate Chips: National Oatmeal Month
I've posted oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and other oatmeal recipes before, but this easy recipe for Chocolate Oatmeal with Chocolate Chips is healthy, as well as delicious. Oatmeal and chocolate are a wonderful combination, and both are good for lowering bad cholesterol.
I use old fashioned slow cooking Quaker Oats in this recipe, but you can always substitute steel cut oats. Just adjust your measurements.
Chocolate Oatmeal with Chocolate Chips
1 cup milk (you can substitute water)
1/2 cup old fashioned oats (I use Quaker Oats)
2 teaspoons Dark cocoa powder (I use Scharffen Berger)
2 teaspoons sugar (I sometimes use brown sugar)
Dash of Salt
Dark Chocolate Chips
1 Heat milk and pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium heat until it begins to simmer.

3 Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally until thickened. Consistency is up to you.
