Please excuse my water hose… It has 3 jobs and a perfidious spouse, so I just leave it alone. Haha.
Anyways, this recipe comes together in 5 minutes and is SO creamy and delicious! Since it's so simple, you can easily add nuts, fruit, or whatever mix-ins or toppings your heart desires!
You can also omit the Cocoa, or add more depending on how intense you want the chocolate flavor to be. I love making these oats at night, mixing it with peanut butter and chilling it overnight for a quick breakfast the next morning!
Okay, okay, here is the recipe.
¾ c. Quick Oats
1½ c Water or Plant Milk
1 T Cocoa
1 T Brown Sugar
1 T Maple Syrup
¼ t Salt
Pinch of Cinnamon
3 Figs, optional
Combine Everything in a small pot or a microwave safe bowl. Microwave or cook on the stove top on medium heat until your desired consistency is achieved. Mine took 5 minutes on the stope top.
That's it! Top it with whatever you want! I used figs and peanut butter and it was delicious!
