Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 1 serving


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp dutch or additional regular cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter (or almond butter, or allergy friendly sub)
  • sweetener of choice
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional 1 ripe banana
  • optional 1/4 cup milk of choice or creamer (I like nutpods creamer, because it’s unsweetened and dairy free)


  • In a pot, combine all ingredients except the vanilla extract and creamer. Feel free to throw in handful of chocolate chips if you wish. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to low, and stir until thick. Take off the heat, stir in the extract, and sweeten as desired. Pour the creamer or additional milk over top for a creamier result, and swirl it into the oatmeal with a spoon. Top with chocolate chips and melted peanut butter if desired.
