Salted Cocoa Oatmeal

What is it about life? How you have been passed through days and decade. Another fall, another turned page. Will you let each pages turned blank or you will write it with your best story.  I know that I will never understand about life. About this wonderful yet wounded universe. I want to see the blue sky without pollution. I want to hear the birds without a horn. I want to smell the grass without a smoke. I want to travel across the world and breathe the air of a new place.

Ask the questions that have no answers. Invest in the millennium. Plant your favorite fruit. Write every story you have. Paint every star you see. Love and be loved. When you arise in the morning think of what precious privilege it is to be alive. To breathe. To think. To enjoy. To love. You know each day has their own surprises, so embrace it. Long time ago someone told me to do a good thing each day. Make a new friend every day (three at least). Make a beautiful day. Turns your day into something worth to live for. There is always be a light and I won’t stop chasing it.

Remember, what we do in life echoes in eternity.

This is the first time I write a post about recipe. To be honest, I am not good at cooking or preparing food. But oh well, let’s try. Lately, through my busyness I hardly find a time to eat breakfast. Even though I know how important is it. I love breakfast though. I have some good memories about that. My grandma used to prepare good breakfast every day when I was a little girl. She always knows how to make me love my breakfast. Well, maybe from now on I have to prepare some time in the morning to get breakfast instead of rolling over my bed.

Start a new day with a good thing is essential. Then start with a good simple breakfast. I love oat, I always do. Besides their good taste, of course I love their texture. I personally prefer rough oat, because the result is perfectly light crunch when you bite them slowly. I called this recipe salted cocoa oatmeal or just call it friendly oatmeal breakfast. Some people may not like oat as much as I do so I tried to make it loveable, perhaps for everyone. The base is vanilla yogurt rippled with indulgent chocolate. When it gets into your mouth, the taste is perfectly salty and sweet. This recipe is perfect for breakfast and helps you to get full. Start your beautiful day with something delicious yet healthy.  

  • ½ cup oats
  • Pinch of salt
  • About 1 cup vanilla yogurt  (it depends on how thick you want it to be)
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk of choice (I used low fat milk)
  • 1 tbsp. chocolate milk powder (you can use cocoa powder if you want to)
  • 1 tbsp. sugar (it depends on how sweet you like it)
  • ½ pack of chocolate bar (I used Hersey)
  • ½ tsp. chocolate sprinkle

In a jar, combine oats, salt, yogurt and vanilla. Mixed them. Boil your milk and put your chocolate milk powder. Add some sugar, taste it, if you want it to be sweet you can add more sugar. Pour it into the oat mixture, and mix them well. Make sure you use safe microwave jar, then put your mixture into a microwave for 60 seconds. Stir them once again before you put it in a smaller bowl.

Leave it overnight until the oats have absorbed the yogurt and the mixture is creamy & thick. When you are ready to serve break the chocolate bar in any size you prefer, and then put it on top of your oatmeal. Add on chocolate sprinkle on top and a pinch of sugar. Enjoy cold, or warmed up in the microwave for 1 minute. I love when the chocolate bar is a little bit melted.
