I don’t know how to even start this post.

This idea came out so good I’m speechless.

Seriously speechless.

I made an experimental breakfast but it could easily be dessert. It’s that good. I’m not kidding!

This is how it started…

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal - ingredients.

Then I remembered I had these in the freezer…

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal - raspberries

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal
Such a few simple ingredients and it took all but 10 minutes.

Here’s what I did…

  • 1 raspberry tea bag
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal (40g)
  • 1 tbsp Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder (5g)
  • 1 tbsp honey (21g)
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries (70g)

Put the tea bag and water in a small pot.

Quick tip: Tie the bag to the handle so it’s easy to fish out later.

Bring to a boil over high heat.

Once boiling, add the oats and lower to the medium. Cook for about 5 minute stirring occasionally until it thickens.

Remove the tea bag. Be sure to squeeze out the excess.

Shut the heat off and stir in the cocoa powder and honey. Combine well. Add the raspberries and stir in. They will cool the oats down while defrosting.

Pour into a bowl and enjoy!

The husband wasn’t a big fan. He asked me what I was making and when I told him he replied, “There is nothing about that I would like. Plus it looks like a pile of poop.”

I can’t really argue but it was a tasty pile of poop.

I mean REALLY tasty.

    I have 3 of the ingredients at home, plus the oatmeal samples all I need is the frozen raspberries. Definitly making it this week! YUM!

    do you have any ideas for oatmeal that have a crunchy texture? I don’t like mushy or even soft oatmeal. I eat my cereal plain w/o milk because I like the crunch. Would love to try an oatmeal dish with crunch!!

    This looks soooo decadent, and reminds me of a cake called “chocolate decadence cake.”

    Christy: I’m not sure if the texture is crunchy, but have you tried baked oatmeal?

    I eat oatmeal with the dark cocoa powder every morning but I never tried it with berries(I usually use peanuts, peanut butter, or almonds). I’ll be trying berries as soon as I can get my hands on some.

    This looks so amazing, but I am unable to find dark cocoa powder at either of our little grocery stores that are local (I’m from a really small town). I tried it with regular cocoa powder and it was good but lacked a little something special. I was just wondering if this could work with dark chocolate chips instead of powder? Would it drastically increase the points? Love your site!

    I think it would totally work. Just skip the honey and melt the chocolate right in! To easily calc the point, just count the oatmeal and chocolate separately. The raspberries are free!

    Roni, if this is as good as it sounds I will love you forever. I think I just squealed out loud when I ran across this. Can’t wait to try it, ’cause I love oatmeal but I am soooo bored with it and I am obsessed with chocolate!

  8. Valerie

    Roni, you have done it again ! It was absolutely AMAZING ! I only had raspberry green tea and frozen mixed berries and it was fantastic :) This is going to be a repeat, I can promise you that ! Thank you for your creativeness !!

    I looove adding cocoa to my oatmeal, but my fruit of choice is usually banana.

    Roni, I know you love oatmeal and butternut squash. Have you tried combining the two? I’ve had it three mornings in a row, so I may be officially obsessed. Roasted chunks of squash, tossed with cinnamon and nutmeg, sprinkled with dried cranberries and pecans. It’s a bowl of fall!

    I just tried the dark chocolate raspberry oatmeal and LOVED IT! I didn’t have the tea so I used a little strawberry jam and fresh strawberries instead of raspberries. It was amazing! Another home run!

    This was absolutely DELICIOUS. I took that first bite and I SWEAR the skies opened up and choruses of little cherubs sang in my delight. DEFINITELY satisfies that chocolate craving.
