Why Is It Called HEALTHY Chocolate Oatmeal?
The reason this chocolate oatmeal can be considered “healthy” is that it is made with non-fat milk, unsweetened cocoa powder and artificial sweetener (no sugar!). And guess what? It is yummy!
This is a perfect for those of you, who like me, have a deep love of all things chocolate, and find it appealing, even in a bowl of healthy OATMEAL! Chocolate for the win! The best part is that making healthy chocolate oatmeal is as simple as stirring up the ingredients and cooking it in the microwave until done. Here’s how to make this yummy breakfast treat:
How To Make Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal
Mix the oats, milk, cocoa powder and sweetener together in a microwave safe bowl. Continue to stir (it takes a minute or two to get the cocoa stirred in, but it WILL get there, so keep stirring- trust me!).
Microwave The Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal
Place the bowl in microwave. Microwave on HIGH power for 2 minutes and 15 seconds. Stir oats every 45 seconds (total of 3 times), until the oatmeal has significantly thickened.
Remove the oatmeal from the microwave, being careful, because it is HOT. Let the oatmeal rest for just a minute before serving. If desired, top with a few sliced raw almonds. Note: Here is where I transferred the cooked oatmeal to a pretty dish for photographing it, but that is not necessary!
Add an additional splash of milk (if oatmeal is a bit too thick for your liking). Stir, serve and enjoy! If you enjoy this delicious healthy chocolate oatmeal, you might want to try my yummy recipe for Maple Nut Oatmeal, too! It’s so good!
It couldn’t be simpler to enjoy a hot, filling bowl of CHOCOLATE oatmeal for breakfast, without adding a lot of additional calories or sugar to your morning! Hope you will consider trying this easy recipe. Have a wonderful day, friends.

Hi there. I simply use a very sharp knife and carefully slice the length of the almond into very thin slices. Have a good day.
