Strawberry Hot Chocolate Oatmeal

I love having oatmeal for breakfast - it's so quick, easy, and adaptable. This is my go-to recipe when I'm craving an early morning chocolate hit.


It's starting to get cold in the mornings now, but strawberries are still in season - which I love - so this recipe makes for a great start to the day. If you cannot readily get strawberries, frozen (and thawed) raspberries would be a great substitute.


Strawberry Hot Chocolate Oatmeal


Serves 1

1/2 Cup quick-cook oats
1 Tbsp hot chocolate powder
1 Cup milk (or water, or half milk half water)
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
2 Strawberries, chopped or sliced
Optional: Chocolate Sauce

1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine oats, hot chocolate, and milk. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir, and microwave for another minute.

2. Stir in the vanilla extract and top with strawberries and chocolate sauce.

    1. Thank you, Janette. And it's hot chocolate powder, so that's totally breakfast related, right?

  3. That looks DELICIOUS! I have oatmeal for breakfast every morning so I am always looking for new things to add to oatmeal. I've had it with cocoa powder and that was OK, but I didn't realize I could've stepped it up with HOT CHOCOLATE POWDER. Yesssss :)
