Fudgy Chocolate Banana Oatmeal

Sunday Brunch! What could be better than starting a day with chocolate (and a massive cup of coffee – am I the only one who needs more sleep even though we got an extra hour last night)? This recipe tastes like a decadent dessert but is healthy and easy to create. When short on time, like this morning, I always microwave my oats, however this recipe works just as well on the stove.

Your welcome for posting something that doesn’t include pumpkin. Although don’t think I’m sick of it yet….

Fudgy Chocolate Banana Oatmeal

Ingredients:

1/2 cup quick oats

1 tsp baking truvia (sugar works just as well)

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup almond milk (any type of milk is perfect)

1/2 tbsp vanilla

1 banana

1 tbsp cocoa powder

Directions:

Combine oats and sweetener in a bowl and mix. Add in milk and water and vanilla. Microwave on high for two minutes. Meanwhile, slice about 2/3 of your banana as thin as you can. Remove oatmeal from microwave and stir in cocoa powder and thinly sliced banana. Stir longer and more vigorously if you want the oatmeal smoother and stir less if you want banana chunks. Put back into the microwave for two more minutes. Top with the rest of your banana and eat 🙂
