Chocolate Oatmeal

Do your kids get tired of the same ole same ole? Mine too!
I've been trying to change up their oatmeal to keep life- um- entertaining!
NOTHING better than chocolate to do my humble opinion :)
2 cups quick oats
5 cups water
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 T butter *opt
1 T coconut oil *opt
1/4 cup cocoa 

Bring water to a boil and add oats. Cook 1 minute and add remaining ingredients. Save leftovers for dessert for lunch!

Looks delicious it looks like the no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. I bet if you added some pb it would taste just like them. I wonder if I could use honey or maple syrup in place of the brown sugar and just reduce water!!

In this recipe, those sweeteners would exchange easily at the same measurements. In the cookies, it might be a little trickier and I think they call for dairy too, so you would have to sub that with coconut or almond, which are thinner.

There's also a peanut butter no bake cookie that's delicious!

Okay- on the to-do! :)

Hey- can you help me with you can? That is, let me know when something I post is gluten-free, if I don't catch it? I wanna start a tab for those but I've not been very good in that study.
