Chocolate Oatmeal with Rolled Oats

This is one of my favorite on the go breakfasts.  You can easily make it at home or at work, and you don't have to use quick oats! I may be the last one to know, but you can prepare rolled oats in the microwave.  Quick oats are great, but rolled oats have tons more fiber in them and are a lot more filling and nutritious than quick oats.

Chocolate Oatmeal with Rolled Oats

To buy:
1/2 cup rolled oats (obviously you'd buy more than half a cup-buy it from the bulk bins at your grocery store-you can get so much for so cheap!)
Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Packets (I used Nestle)

To do:

Stovetop: Bring a cup of water to a boil, add 1/2 cup of rolled oats (this makes one filling serving)
Once the oats have absorbed most of the water, pour the packet of hot chocolate mix into the pot. Stir until oats absorb the rest of the water and the hot chocolate mix.


Microwave: Put 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1 cup of water and hot chocolate mix into a microwaveable bowl.  WATCH as you microwave it (I do 30 second increments and stir in between until the oats have fully absorbed the water and the hot chocolate mix.
