  1. Whisk the milk, cocoa powder, turbinado sugar, and almond extract together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until the sugar has dissolved; bring the mixture to a simmer.
  2. Stir the mashed banana and oatmeal into the milk mixture; cook at a simmer until the oatmeal is thickened and the banana has broken up slightly, about 5 minutes. Fold the slivered almonds into the oatmeal to serve.

I enjoyed this. I've been trying to eat breakfast more often and I'm a fan of the hot cereal. Was looking for a new idea when I came across this one. Mmm chocolate and bananas in oatmeal? Fantas...

This was an awesome recipe, but my mom thought it was too rich. I'm 11, and I would have given it 5 stars. We didn't have turbinado sugar so we used white sugar instead. We also didn't have a...

This is a really good recipe, but I also found it rather rich for breakfast. I do love all the flavors but I think I'd cut back on the sugar and use less almond extract (or maybe just use vanill...

This oatmeal was really good, and an awesome source of potassium! I expected it to be bland, but it's great. I cut the recipe in half because I only wanted one serving, and it still worked out g...
