Featured Recipe: Basic Chocolate Oatmeal (from Chocolate Covered Katie)

Photo credits to Chocolate Covered Katie

I'm periodically going to be featuring some of my favorite bloggers and their recipes here on my blog.  There are so many wonderfully talented people out there with recipes too good not to share.  Like this Basic Chocolate Oatmeal recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie, one of my all-time favorite bloggers (and probably my favorite food blogger).  A lot of her recipes are easily adapted to THM (although her blog is not a THM blog, just clarifying).

This oatmeal recipe is amazing.

You guys know that I love overnight oatmeal, right?  Well her recipe is *the* ultimate overnight oatmeal recipe.  You know why?  Because from 1/2 a cup of oats (a moderate portion for an E meal), you get a big bowl of oatmeal.  I'm always into recipes involving big bowls.  And it's chocolate, which is always awesome (but it doesn't have to be chocolate; read on down for details on other flavors).

To THM-ify this recipe,

-use almond milk (I used water for half the liquid)

-use plan-approved sweetener such as pure stevia extract powder (my personal favorite) or Truvia

-omit the optional ingredients (yes, omit the chocolate chips, sadly)

-if you want to top it with something, use 0% Greek yogurt, almond milk, FF Reddi-Whip, or other approved E toppings


If you want different flavors, I have some great news for you!  Any of these 5 flavors of overnight oatmeal can be made according to CCK's directions!  To do so,

-decrease the oats to 1/2 cup

-omit the glucomannan

(Hint: I went ahead and added my additional ingredients after cooking the oats and salt in the liquid instead of waiting until the next morning.)

And it makes one big serving, all for you!  This morning I made my two favorite flavors (Banana Bread Batter and CafĂ© Mocha) using Katie's instructions and shared with my sister:
