Black Forest Oatmeal (Chocolate Cherry)

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by Kris B.

Hmmm...Those sour cherries in the fridge might be good in oatmeal. Yes, but what's even better than oatmeal? CHOCOLATE oatmeal. Thus black forest oatmeal was born. Try it topped with vanilla yogurt

I love trying different kinds of oatmeal so couldn't wait to try this recipe, but it did take me a while to find the tart cherries. I finally ordered them online and am so glad I got a large jar because this makes a delicious breakfast! Instead of cocoa powder I used chocolate protein powder.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix oats, milk, cocoa powder, and sugar in large microwaveable bowl.
  2. Microwave on high 2-3 minutes. If you like your oatmeal very thick, microwave for an extra 2 minutes on half power.
  3. Stir in chocolate bits and sour cherries.
