1-3/4 cups water
1 cup oats, dry, quick cooking
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp. cocoa powder, unsweetened
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup strawberries, fresh sliced or blueberries (optional)
2 Tbsp. pecan pieces (optional)
In a medium saucepan mix water, salt, cinnamon, cocoa and brown sugar and bring to a boil.
Lower heat to medium-low and stir in oats, raisins and vanilla extract.
Cover and remove from heat and serve in about 2-3 minutes topped with low fat milk and/or (optional) berries and pecans and enjoy!
Note from Karen: Frank and I really love to eat this on a chilly Sunday morning with a nice hot cup of coffee and a glass of juice. You can add milk or yogurt to this sweet , chocolaty hot oatmeal or just eat alone without toppings…you decide!
