Cocoa-Date Oatmeal
From EatingWell: The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

"I was inspired by the news that chocolate can be good for you," wrote reader Jennifer Sanders of Cambridge, Ontario. "Why not eat it for breakfast?" She shared her recipe for this heart-warming chocolaty hot cereal. If you are looking for a way to get your kids to start their day with a bowl of oatmeal, this is it. The microwave is convenient, but you can also cook the oatmeal on the stovetop following package directions. Top the cereal with milk or soymilk and sweeten with brown sugar or no-calorie sweetener, if desired.

4 servings, 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes

* 1/4 cup chopped pitted dates, (10-12 dates)
* 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
* 2 tablespoons cocoa
* Pinch of salt
* 2 cups water


1. Combine dates, oats, cocoa and salt in a 1-quart microwavable container. Slowly stir in the water. Partially cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on Medium for 4 or 5 minutes, then stir. Microwave on Medium again for 3 or 4 minutes, then stir. Continue cooking and stirring until the cereal is creamy.
