Extra Thick Chocolate Oatmeal

If you like a traditional porridge-consistency to your oatmeal, follow the recipe and use 1 cup of water. However, if you want to try them super thick, somewhat like a stovetop version of my brownie batter overnight oats, try reducing the water down to 3/4 cup. Cooking them with less water results in a thick and creamy bowl of chocolate oatmeal with a flavour and texture that falls somewhere between brownie batter and cake batter. You can stir in a bit of almond milk once cooked to adjust the thickness.

Chocolate Oatmeal Topping Ideas

I went with a peanut butter topping but you can switch this chocolate oatmeal up any way you want with different toppings or add-ins. If you’ve got a well-stocked vegan pantry, you’re always ready with the best oatmeal toppings.Here are some ideas:

  • chopped strawberries and shredded coconut
  • chocolate chips and raspberries
  • cacao nibs and peanuts
  • dairy-free yogurt and fruit of choice
  • almonds and shredded coconut
  • walnuts and blueberries
  • tahini and raspberries
  • chia seed jam and banana
  • cacao nibs and hemp seeds
