Red Velvet Oatmeal

Yum


2012 was all about oatmeal for me. I ate oatmeal basically every single morning. I struggled to shovel it down my throat in the beginning but after a while it just became my morning ritual. Coffee and my bowl of oatmeal. It's real good for my stomach and staying in track with a healthy diet. But it gets boring. 
So after months and months of oatmeal I started to become kind of disgusted by it. So my ritual was disappearing quickly. What replaced the porridge were usually a slice of bread or toast or eggs or simply nothing. But eating no breakfast is the WORST you can do to yourself since your body needs fuel to start the day, as well as, your metabolism! Thus I need to get back to my oatmeal. But I also have to change my recipe a bit to have new flavors to enjoy, or at least bear.
I'm planning to make some red velvet whoopie pies today so it gave me the idea... Let's make red velvet oatmeal! Yay! Such a cool idea! Now this oatmeal had a slight cocoa flavor to it and when you stir in the cream cheese frosting... It's like totally amazing! I'm not saying you should be eating this every day since it has sugar in it but for a weekend breakfast it's pretty awesome! :) Hope you'll like it too!

Red Velvet Oatmeal
makes for 1 person

1/2 cup oatmeal
1 cup water
1/2 cup rice milk - or any type of milk
pinch of salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp butter
vanilla
1 tsp red food coloring 

for the frosting
2 tsp cream cheese
1 tsp butter
1 heaped tsp powdered sugar

Measure the water and milk in a cooking bowl. Add in the oatmeal, salt and vanilla. Cook it over very low heat for about 10 minutes. When it starts to get real thick, add the cocoa powder, sugar,butter and the food coloring. Stir, stir, stir.

To make the frosting, mix the cream cheese, butter and sugar together. Simple.

To serve add the frosting to your oatmeal and stir it while leaving lumps of the frosting. So so so good :) Enjoy!

  1. The whole "you will die a horrible death if you don't eat breakfast" thing is a myth. What is true is that some people tend to overeat at lunch if they don't eat breakfast, but skipping breakfast is not innately horrible for you. I haven't eaten breakfast in years and I am at a healthy weight, have excellent vitals, feel awesome, etc.

    That being said, if I were to eat breakfast, this oatmeal looks like it would rock my face off. :P

  5. Tried it this morning, but quadrued it. I did not multiply the amount of food coloring, though. Turned out very thick. Results - cocoa did not dissolve, leaving chunks/speckles. Even with added extra sweetness, like Mint15 said, there was not enough. In all there was a lack of flavor. IF we try this again I'll decrease the amount of liquid (due to increasing serving sizes), use chocolate syrup and change sugar measurements to Tablespoons.
