Red Berry Oatmeal

Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like chocolate, so I figured, why not add it to my breakfast oatmeal this Valentine’s Day? Chocolate in warm oats is such a treat, especially since the chocolate melts and makes oatmeal taste like warm cookie dough. Plus, when I have chocolate in the morning, it tends to satisfy my chocolate cravings for the rest of the day. Here’s how I made my Red Berry Oatmeal (with chocolate chips of course):

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of oats
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • half a banana (chopped)
  • 4 large strawberries (chopped), or 1/4 cup of your favorite red berries (cherries or raspberries)
  • Your favorite toppings

Instructions:

  1. Place oats, water, banana and strawberries in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.
  2. Add your favorite toppings! I put a handful of raspberries, toasted chopped pecans, and a handful of chocolate chips (because who doesn’t love the combination of berry and chocolate)
  3. Enjoy!

Notes:

  1. If you are using frozen berries instead of fresh, microwave for 3 minutes
