  • 1 cup oats ( I used quick cooking)
  • 3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder Dutch Processed is best
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar (use maple syrup, honey or any sweetener or skip all together)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cup Milk ( any type) **see notes
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee or espresso ( optional or replace it with more milk)
  • Toppings:
  • Homemade Caramel Sauce
  • Melted chocolate
  • Chopped nuts
  • Fresh Berries
  • Honey
  • Maple Syrup
  • Granola
  • Chocolate pieces
  • Spices


  1. Use 2 large bowls, place 1/2 cup of oats in each bowl, 1 1/2 Tablespoons of cocoa Powder, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 1/2 cups of milk and coffee total ( or all milk) in each bowl. Microwave the bowl for 2 minutes, mix the oatmeal with a spoon and microwave for another minute until it has bubbles.
  2. *use 4 bowls and divide the above into 2 for a smaller size bowl.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for at least 30 minutes or over night. Chill if you prefer a cold oatmeal.
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings.
  5. ** This liquid produces a thick oatmeal closer to a pudding consistency, served cold. If you prefer a warm oatmeal, remove 1/4 cup of liquid per bowl. If you prefer a runny oatmeal texture, add an extra 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of liquid per bowl.
