This bowl of creamy oats was inspired by a decadent hot cocoa drink at Starbucks. However, our b-fast is way more filling and satisfying than that mug!
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
One 25-calorie packet hot cocoa mix (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
Dash table salt
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
2 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp. fat-free or light caramel dip (like the kinds by Marzetti), softened
1/8 tsp. coarse salt
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip
Combine oats, cocoa mix, and table salt in a nonstick pot on the stove. Add Almond Breeze and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
Cook for 12 - 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until very thick and creamy.
Transfer to a bowl and allow to slightly cool and thicken. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with coarse salt. If you like, top with Reddi-wip. Eat up!
