Oats & Cocoa

Saturday morning was a perfect time to make Steel Cut Oatmeal for breakfast, since weekends are when you can afford to spend 40 minutes on breakfast.


I was a bit nervous about not stirring for 25 minutes, but in the end it worked out well and the cinnamon and brown sugar was a great addition!

In the evening I made up some Hot Cocoa mix, and we tried it out with hot water, which was good but not great. On Sunday we made some more for dessert, this time mixing it with hot milk, and that was amazing. Milk is definitely the way to go for this.

I think I might mix up a whole bunch of this around Christmas and give it away.

Hot Cocoa

  • Crowd: 4/5
  • Ease: 4/5
  • Tried with both water and with milk -- milk by far is better
