Recipe by Geema
Yep...chocolate for breakfast. I created this recipe trying to get my grandkids to eat their oatmeal. Now it's my favorite way to fix this healthy start breakfast. I use my rice cooker to make oatmeal...fast and easy!

I made this in the microwave, scaled down to one serving. I used milk instead of water, omitted the blueberries and salt, and concocted my own "cocoa powder" using 1 tsp. cocoa and 2 tsp. sugar. (I would not recommend using straight cocoa in this recipe.) After tasting it, I added about a tablespoon more sugar. It was just a little bit more chocolatey than I'd like, being a milk chocolate person. So, next time, I'll try using 1/2 tsp. cocoa and 2 tsp. sugar. In the future, I am also considering tinkering with the addition of bananas OR just a little bit of orange juice, but not together.
