Happy Memorial Day!
Oatmeal is a healthy breakfast that is pretty good, but this chocolate oatmeal is a sinful and relatively healthy breakfast treat. I love to serve this oatmeal for a breakfast treat or a late night snack. Chocolate oatmeal is creamy and sweet with a touch of spice. It is perfect for summer when we have abundance of fresh mint and strawberries. The strawberries and mint add some fresh and bright tones that enhance the richness of the chocolate. You could also add chocolate chips, Nutella or bananas to make this oatmeal even more of a treat! Kids of all ages will love chocolate for breakfast!
