Super Fudgy Steel-Cut Oats

Nutty + chocolatey +... healthy?  Yes!  Cocoa + coconut oil work so well with the steel cut oats here.

Steel cut oats have a wonderful nutty flavor and a satisfying crunch.  While I generally prefer them to the standard rolled variety, I would avoid them because they were too much work.  That is, until I realized I could make steel cut oats easily in my single serving rice cooker (stay tuned for some more details in a future post!).

To make these chocolate oats, you will need:

  • Plain oats of choice, cooked as you like them and warm (steel cut oats are wonderful!)
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, to taste
  • Sweetener of choice, to taste (I used Splenda)
  • Coconut butter, a small dab for richness or to taste
  1. Mix everything together.
  2. Taste and adjust ingredients as necessary.
  3. Enjoy!

  1. The reason being that the process steaming and rolling oats takes some of the taste out of them. So it is a tradeoff flame cut outs between quality and flavor versus convenience.
