Obviously, this oatmeal is for those who HATE oatmeal. Because after you taste this - you fall in love with oats. It feels like you're eating a rich in fat and gooey chocolate dessert. However, it is a ridiculously easy and simple dish. The banana adds moistness and makes this oatmeal super rich. But make sure you use good quality cocoa! Otherwise, you won't get that amazing flavour. It is also low in calories, healthy and nutritious food. I think I've mentioned enough reasons for loving oats and this dessert. And I actually feel inspired to try oatmeal with many more flavours!
1/2 cup/40g rolled oats
1/2 cup/120ml water
1/2 cup/120ml milk
pinch of salt
1/2 medium banana, mashed
1-1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1) Bring the milk and water to a boil.
2) Add the oats and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
3) Add the banana, salt, cocoa powder, brown sugar and cinnamon and cook until all the liquid is absorbed (about 1 minute).
