Do you frequently get a case of the grumpies in the morning?  Maybe a bowlful of chocolate oatmeal will do the trick.

(Works for us!)


1/2 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cup milk or water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Sweetener to taste
Chocolate chips (optional)

Combine all ingredients except sweetener and chocolate chips.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 to 7 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.  Stir in sweetener and top with chocolate chips and a splash of milk if desired.  Serve hot or make ahead of time and refrigerate overnight for cold oatmeal ready right away.
Thanks to Chocolate Covered Katie for the recipe inspiration.
It worked!  Grumpies gone.
