Wow! That was about the best oatmeal I ever had! I just found out about RecipeZaar because I wanted to try new recipes for my traditional oatmeal breakfast. Just the right thing for me - since I love both chocolate and oatmeal! I tried it with 1/4 c oatmeal, 1/3 c milk(plus 1 c water), 1/2 banana and 1/2 tsp cocoa(which was enough) and then added 2 tbsp blueberries for some antioxidants.

Very good! Much better than I thought. I will make this again! Thanks for a great Core recipe!

For some reason I found a tablespoon of the baking cocoa to be too much (I actually used a little less than a tablespoon but it was still too much). The chocolate was overpowering and I could barely taste the banana or cinnamon. I will try again with less cocoa (which is really weird for me because I LOVE chocolate). Thanks for the recipe post-its a good combination of flavors to spice up ordinary oatmeal, I just need to personalize the quantities to fit my taste.
