Everyone’s heard about how healthy oatmeal is for us. It can lower your cholesterol, keep you fuller for longer, keep ya regular, etc. etc. etc.
Have I ever told y’all about my first oatmeal experience?? For the life of me, I honestly thought I would never get over it. It was that bad. Years and years ago, I bought the instant oatmeal (crap) at the grocery store. Even then, all the added sugars and artificial flavorings didn’t help the terrible blandness. I ended up adding even more sugar to the bowl and a bunch of chocolate chips, kinda defeating the purpose of a healthy bowl of oatmeal, right?
It’s been quite a few years since my horrible oatmeal experience, and since then I’ve learned that the instant stuff isn’t oatmeal at all, it’s more like 80% filler and 20% broken oat pieces.
Back in college, I decided I was going to have a bowl of oatmeal every day. If an oatmeal a day was my goal, I had to make it taste good! My journey began with some plain, old-fashioned rolled oats in a bowl with some milk, microwaved for two minutes. It smelled pretty… boring. I added cinnamon, tasted it, and added some more along with some stevia. It tasted a little better, but after a few bites I struggled to eat my way through the entire bowl. Nothing I added helped — nutmeg, vanilla extract, more stevia — it was tooooorturrre. I just wanted a simple oatmeal that I could eat (and enjoy eating) every morning.
And that’s when I, naturally, started thinking of chocolate.
