A Chaaaklety Sunday Morning

Chaaklet oats!

Chaaklet oats!

So I felt like I wanted to jazz up my usual breakfast oatmeal. I’ve been a bit experimental these days in trying to use existing food items in my pantry. One of those items is cocoa powder. So I typed in cocoa powder and oats in google and stumbled on several web pages on Chocolate Oatmeal, such as this one and this one.

The recipes tend to include banana as one of the ingredients. I guess that’s understandable to sweeten the neutralise the bitter cocoa powder taste. No bananas in my kitchen, but I have dates and honey! Milk gives a creamier texture to the oatmeal, but personally I find it fine with water, especially after its been cooking on the stove for a while.

So in short …

1) Mix 1/2 cup rolled Oats + 1/2 to 2/3 cups water + 1/2 tsp cocoa powder + couple of dates (chopped or just break them up with your fingers) and cook them on the stove until oats have absorb most of the water (consistency totally up to you).

2) Place in your usual breakfast bowl, topped with your favourite berries and a slight drizzle of honey

3)Ā  [Optional] Take a picture of it and post it on Facebook/Twitter/Wordpress/Instagram/Path/Tumblr/etc…

4) Nomnomnomnom…..

An afterthought… how about using Milo as a substitute for the cocoa powder and dates? Hmmm…..

Happy Sunday! šŸ™‚
