  • 3/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup milk (to make it super decadent use heavy cream but then you negate it from being healthy)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder (I prefer King Arthur Dough Dutch Cocoa)
  • 12 tablespoon dark chocolate chips


  1. In a saucepan, mix oats, milk (cream), sugar and cocoa powder.
  2. Bring just to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. – just to where the edges are starting to boil. You don’t want a full rolling boil.
  3. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until the milk is almost gone and the oats are soft.
  4. Pour the oatmeal into a bowls and garnish with the dark chocolate chips.


You can adjust your sugar for taste. I ended up sprinkling about a teaspoon of sugar on top when it was done to counter the richness of the chocolate.
