Good easy and healthy morning oatmeal! I like the addition of the banana, because it tastes good with the chocolate and because of the health benefits. I sprinkled my cinnamon on top after cooking instead of mixing it in. Thanks for posting your recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2010

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup regular oats (not instant)
  • 1 packet diet hot cocoa mix (25 calories)
  • 12 medium banana, mashed
  • 18 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 dash salt

Directions

  1. Pour cocoa mix into a glass with cinnamon, sweetener and salt. Add 1/4 cup of hot water, and stir thoroughly.
  2. Once cocoa mix has dissolved, add 1/4 cup of cold water and stir. Place mixture in the fridge to chill. (Make sure it is cold, or oatmeal may bubble over when cooking!)
  3. When ready, combine with mashed banana and oats in a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, and mix well.
  4. Microwave dish for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes (depending on how thick you like your oatmeal). Give it a stir, and then allow oatmeal to cool and thicken. Enjoy!
