This is a tasty breakfast treat. I tried to make something similar to a peppermint patty and the result is really good. I used oat bran for my creamy porridge, but oats would be good too. You can vary the amount of cocoa, cream cheese, or sugar substitute to suite your taste. I use stevia to sweeten mine, but any sweetener will do.
