Chocolate oatmeal is a quick and easy breakfast recipe that tastes like dessert! It’s thick, creamy, rich, chocolatey, and oh so delicious. The healthy 1-pot recipe is made with pantry staples, like rolled oats, cocoa powder, and plant-based milk. It’s vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and made in 10 minutes.




  1. Combine all ingredients in a small pot.
  2. Transfer the pot to a stove. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thick and creamy. This should take about 6-8 minutes. Stir the oatmeal often to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  3. Transfer oatmeal to bowl(s). Add your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
