Molasses and Cocoa Oatmeal

This is a almost hot-chocolate tasting oatmeal according to my 7 year old who ate it very quickly without the constant nudging to finish her food. It got a thumbs up from her!


750ml Boiling Water

1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon ground Nutmeg

2 teaspoons ground Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Crude Black Molasses

4 teaspoons + 1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon Cocoa powder

500ml oats

125ml full cream milk

Honey to drizzle


1. Add the water to a pot and switch the stove to medium heat.

2. Add the salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, molasses and honey. Cook for 5 minutes.

3. Add the oats and cook for 6 to 7 minutes.

4. Add the milk and cook for 3 minutes or until the oats starts to thicken.

Serve with milk and a drizzle of honey.
