Chocolate Oatmeal Porridge

Recipe by  

"A creamy, chocolatey breakfast treat minus the fat and excessive sugar. Tastes like tiny chocolate teddy bears! If porridge is too thick or oats are uncooked, add more boiling water to it till cooked and desired thickness reached. Serve with a splash of cold milk."

I made this exactly according to recipe, only folding in one chopped banana and serving with a float of whole milk on top. The kids split this between them. I did not try it myself but they loved it. My oldest boy asked for seconds. Next time, I'll double the recipe.

I followed the recipe exactly and did not care for it. It was not nearly sweet enough for me. I added some shredded coconut and Splenda, which helped; however, I do not plan to make it again.

I made this according to directions, with the exception that I realized as I began to make it that I only had old-fashioned oats rather than steel-cut. So the cooking time was quite a bit shorter. The flavor was very good, really like good rich hot chocolate with oatmeal in it. Very nice, will make it again.

Very tasty and chocolaty. I used a mixture of old fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats, and oat bran, and used half 2 percent and half almond milk. I Also reduced the sugar to about about 3 tablespoons and it was very chocolaty, tasty, and great with a bit of yogurt. It had the perfect consistency after about 5 minutes. Dad and I liked it, my sister needed more sweetener. Great oatmeal!

I used old fashioned oats and I like my oatmeal chewy so I doubled the oats. Yummy!

Sorry to say, I'll have to just give this a 3-star "It was OK" rating. I made it exactly as written, except I cooked it for about 20 minutes, until thickened enough. It turned out to be like a hot, runny chocolate pudding, mixed with steel-cut oats. Not that I don't like both dishes separately, but the combination just seemed a bit weird. I ate it all, for three consecutive breakfasts, but I probably won't be making this again. Just a personal taste thing, I guess.

This was my first experience using steel cut oats. I did have to add more water and cook longer, as the submitter said we might. I'm thinking the honey didn't flavor or sweeten to my personal preference, so I ended up adding a splash of my favorite flavored liquid coffee creamer. I kept trying to figure this recipe out, so with the last few bites, I added a small dollop of Cool Whip and decided this would make a better "healthy" dessert than breakfast.
