Equipment

  • Medium Sauce Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup quick steel cut oats I found mine at Aldi (if using non-quick oats, see traditional steel cut oats instructions)
  • 1.5 cup non-dairy milk I used oat milk (3 cups needed for non-quick oats)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp powdered peanut butter I used PB2 (real nut butter would work as well)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp dairy-free dark chocolate chips

Topping Ideas

  • drizzle of maple syrup
  • chopped walnuts
  • additional chocolate chips
  • splash of dairy-free creamer

Instructions
 

Quick Steel Cut Oats

  • Bring dairy-free milk to a boil in a medium saucepan.
  • Add in oats and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients. Stir to incorporate and simmer for 5 minutes until oats begin to thicken or they are your desired consistency.
  • Top with additional chocolate chips, walnuts, and maple syrup for sweeter oatmeal!
