Cocoa-Date Oatmeal

The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (28 votes)

"I was inspired by the news that chocolate can be good for you," wrote reader Jennifer Sanders of Cambridge, Ontario. "Why not eat it for breakfast?" She shared her recipe for this heart-warming chocolaty hot cereal. If you are looking for a way to get your kids to start their day with a bowl of oatmeal, this is it. The microwave is convenient, but you can also cook the oatmeal on the stovetop following package directions. Top the cereal with milk or soymilk and sweeten with brown sugar or no-calorie sweetener, if desired.



READER'S COMMENT:
"So glad to see it is not only us in South Africa that tend to get a bit hectic with each other on forums like these... ...Patrick Holford says that if you make oatmeal and then let it cool down and heat it up again and cool it down again...

This is made with unsweetened cocoa powder, but I found that the dates made it sweet enough. This was really good and packed with nutrients from the dates, oatmeal, and cocoa!

This was very good. It was like eating warm pudding. It would be a great snack in the afternoons if you want something chocolate.

try this in the slow cooker on low for 5 hours - excellent for those of us who don't have time to make breakfast in the morning.

I tried this and found it very good. I like oatmeal and it can get boring with just milk and sugar--I like brown sugar. So I'm very eager to try this, and the dates are a change from raisins. YumO
