Chocolate Bananas Foster Oatmeal

So it would seem I’m on a bit of an oatmeal kick this week! I’m loving experimenting with different flavors, plus I’ve had a small toothache so oatmeal has been an easy food to eat!

Like breakfast foods, I wasn’t a huge fan of chocolate before I got pregnant, now I can’t get enough! (I thought those pregnancy cravings would go away after I had the baby…nope!!) So any chance I had to add some chocolate to anything I go for it (note: this is just as delicious without the cocoa powder)

Combine the following in a microwave safe bowl:
•1/2 cup old fashioned oats
•1 cup unsweetened almond milk
•1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
•1/2 banana, sliced
•1 Tbsp packed brown sugar
•1/2 tsp vanilla

Microwave for 2 minutes, stir well, then microwave another minute or two. I like my oatmeal a little thicker so I microwaved it for 4 minutes total. Make sure you watch it closely so it doesn’t bubble over! The oatmeal will thicken as it cools, the picture below is right after, 2 minutes later, and 5 minutes after that.

You could make this with water or regular milk, but I like the creaminess the almond milk gives!

ENJOY!
