Chocolate-Spice Oatmeal

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Jrroe

I run a busy college schedule and I need a breakfast with some 'pep' to get me up and going in the mornings and can cater to my equipment limitation (Dorms only allow microwaves). I spend my extra computer time browsing through different recipes and patched together this recipe from everything I've read. I'm a major health nut, so this oatmeal is not only tasty, but very good for you. Enjoy. The soy milk gives the oatmeal a satisfying, nutty taste!

This is an easy recipe, but I think it is a bit heavy on the cinnamon. I would reverse the amounts of cinnamon and cocoa. 2 teaspoons of cinnamon gave it a bitter edge. Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
