Cocoa Cinnamon Topper

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MechanicalJen

Taken from "Favorite Recipes: Quaker Oat Bran", which I found in an impressive sized stack of cookbooks that my mom gave me. Wish she had tried some of these on us! At any rate, this stuff is great on vanilla yogurt - or whatever else you might dream up.

This is a delicious flavor combination -- chocolate, cinnamon and orange! It reminds me of a decadent coffee drink. The toasted oat bran has a definite nutty aroma and mixed together this is a delightful way to get a little fiber with your yogurt! I'm planning to perhaps mix in some flax seeds and some dried fruit, perhaps some toasted chopped almonds, too. Yummmmmm...... Thanks, MechanicalJen! Made for PAC Spring 2008
