Hot Chocolate Oatmeal

This hot chocolate oatmeal is a perfect mix of a hot chocolate and morning oatmeal. It’s very rich, creamy and comforting and will fill you up and satisfy your chocolate craving at the same time.



  1. Pour the milk into a saucepan. Add the oats and bring the milk to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, add the cocoa powder and 1 1/2 tablespoon of milk in a small bowl and mix to create a smooth paste.
  3. Add the cocoa paste, salt, dark chocolate, vanilla extract, and maple syrup to the oats. Mix well to combine and bring it to a light simmer. Take off the heat.
  4. If you like your oats to be creamy, you can cover the saucepan and let the oats swell for about 5 minutes or you can serve them as is.
