Chocolate Coconut Heaven Oats

I've recently been seeing lots of posts throughout the blog world for chocolate oatmeal. Stellar idea, in my opinion. Since I generally eat dessert after every meal anyway (no judgement please) I figure its best if I can incorporate it into the actual meal to maximize enjoyment (and healthiness!).

This may seem like just another chocolate oatmeal post...but its not. All of the chocolate oats recipes I've seen thus far have been choco-fied via a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder. But unfortunately, when I've tried this I've found it tastes, well...powdery.

This recipe choco-fies (if I use this word twice in one post that makes it real, right?) itself by using Silk Chocolate Soy Milk as its milk/water source.
Plus its vegan!

Don't ya want some?

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup Silk Chocolate Soy Milk
1 mushed up banana
1 tbsp shredded coconut

Try with:
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp coconut oil
optional: chocolate chips! It (obviously) adds a lot!

1. Throw all the ingredients you want into a microwave-safe bowl and stir 'em around.
2. Pop the bowl in the microwave and cook for about 2 and a half minutes.
3. Let it cool.
4. Eat eat eat!!!

  1. I eat dessert after every meal too! I'm so glad that I'm not the only one.
    I hope you weren't kidding, because I'm not.
