Chocolate Oatmuck (Oatmeal)

READY IN: 31mins
Recipe by Ryouri Girl

My kids think this is more like a treat than breakfast. I usually make up a batch in the evening, so I don't have to wait in the morning for it to be ready. It's tasty either hot or cold. I will often sneak a bite from the fridge when I'm looking for a treat.

Wow... "treat" is right! This stuff is seriously good... almost like a healthy chocolate pudding! I thought it might be a little too liquid (even after simmering uncovered) but it thickened up nicely upon cooling. This is going to be my new favorite dessert!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet and saute steel cut oats over medium high heat for about one minute.
  2. Add hot water, bring to a boil and reduce heat to keep at a simmer for 20 minutes. Do not stir!
  3. Mix salt, sugar and cocoa powder together to prevent the cocoa from clumping and add to oats. Add milk and continue to simmer for another 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
