THM: Chocolate Oatmeal



I found the recipe for Pumpkin Bread In A Bowl at Chocolate Covered Katie.  I decided to add a chocolate twist to it and make it Trim Healthy Mama friendly.  I like this oatmeal so much I have been known to eat it anytime of the day, not just for breakfast!

This recipe is an E that could easily be a cross over by adding some unsweetened coconut or almonds or chocolate chips.  If you are like me you throw in a small handful of chocolate chips and still tell yourself it is close enough to an E.  Shh, don't tell the THMs!  ;)

Chocolate Oatmeal - E 
(2 servings-thanks Stacy for catching that)

1/3 cup pumpkin
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 Tb cocoa powder
3/4 cup dry rolled oats
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
4 shakes or more stevia

Place the pumpkin, almond milk, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, and stevia in a bowl.  Mix well.  Microwave on high 1 minute.  Add oatmeal and stir.  Let sit for a bit to thicken.
Now quick throw in those few chocolate chips.  ;)
Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for linking up at Trim Healthy Tuesday! This is a great E breakfast when divided by 2! Make sure to watch that chocolate chip intake to avoid stalling.
