This is a variation of the Overnight Oatmeal that we like. However, I have to say that my kids definitely prefer this one! Since my oven is still broken, we are eating a lot of oatmeal for breakfast. And, this is a nice change from the fruit versions. We like it best served with cream on top. Mmmmm. What could be better than chocolate for breakfast?
2 cups old fashioned oats
3 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup sugar (white or raw)
1 cup milk
1 cup water
Stir together all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight, if desired. To serve: Remove cover and microwave on high for 4-6 minutes, or until heated through. Yield: 4 servings.
Frugal Tip: This Chocolate Oatmeal is a great alternative to pricy individual oatmeal packets.
