Hot cocoa oatmeal

I was making oatmeal just now, and when I went for the sugar I saw the Ghirardelli cocoa powder sitting there, looking strangely alluring. It just seemed natural to add it to the boiling milk / oat mixture. And guess what? It’s delicious! Here’s how you can make your own (makes one serving):

  1. Add 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 stick of cinnamon, and 1 cup milk to small pot
  2. Heat to high on stove until almost boiling
  3. Stir in 1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder
  4. Continue stirring and add 1 heaping tablespoon raw sugar (possibly less if you have the sweetened cocoa; I was using the unsweetened variety)
  5. Boil to desired consistency
  6. Serve with fresh strawberries and raspberries (and banana if you’ve got it – I didn’t)
