Mocha Latte Oatmeal

I feel like an ice cube. My body is definitely not ready for winter, and this little cold front we are having here in Tennessee needs to go back where it came from. I am not a fan of the cold weather, but there is one benefit of cold winter mornings....

Yep, it's hot oatmeal season again! What better way to warm up and start your day than with a hot and creamy bowl of oats? This particular recipe will definitely motivate you to get up and then keep you going. It's like your morning Cup of Joe and favorite breakfast treat all rolled into one. And because it's mocha, its awesomeness is automatically quadrupled. (Because chocolate makes everything better. :) )

 :


Mocha Latte Oatmeal
¾ cup rolled oats
1 ½ cups coffee
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 banana, mashed
pinch of salt
sweetener, to taste
¼ cup milk

Bring the coffee to a boil in a small pot and stir in the oats, salt, and cocoa powder until there are no lumps. Cook until the oatmeal has reached your desired consistency and then add in the banana and sweetener to taste. Meanwhile, whisk the milk until frothy. Heat it in the microwave for 40 seconds. Serve the oats topped with the steamed milk.
