Chocoholic Chocolate Brownie Oatmeal
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • ½ cup rolled oats cooked with 1.5 cups of water
  • 1 tsp raw, unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup non-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon walnuts (optional)
  • 1 cup Blueberries (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda
Instructions
  1. Cook the oats with 1.5 cups of water until the oats are fluffy and all the water has disappeared (I do this by cooking it for 2 minutes in the microwave, stirring, and cooking it for 2 more minutes.)
  2. Add the cocoa powder and cinnamon to the cooked oats while they are still hot.
  3. Stir until everything is fully combined, and your oats have a deep chocolatey color.
  4. Add the walnuts, and the milk (you can add as much milk as you like – I use about ½ a cup to give the oats a nice creamy consistency)
  5. Add the splenda and stir to combine until the oats have the consistency you like. If you’re using blueberries, add them in now.
  6. Enjoy the chocolatey brownie goodness of the oatmeal.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup diced assorted vegetables (the more colors the better!)
  • ½ cup egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 whole-wheat, low-sodium lavash thin bread
  • 3 Tablespoons shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons fat-free sour cream
  • ¼ cup pico de gallo (no salt added) or no-salt-added salsa (such as Enrico’s brand)
Instructions
  1. In a medium nonstick skillet, sauté vegetables until beginning to brown. Add egg whites and scramble. Season with black pepper.
  2. On a warm griddle or flat-top grill, place lavash thin bread and let the side facing the heat get hot.
  3. Turn the bread over on the griddle or grill, and sprinkle the cheese on top side.
  4. On half of the top side, spread the vegetable scramble and cilantro.
  5. When the cheese begins to melt, fold the thin bread in half to cover the vegetables. Press firmly, using a tool like a large firm spatula or bottom of a pan. Flip on the other side, grill for about 2 minutes, and press.
  6. Remove from heat. Cut quesadilla into four pieces. Serve two pieces per person with fat-free sour cream and salsa on the side.

This is a great cereal that isn’t covered in sugar that still tastes good! I love that there is finally a cereal with characters that isn’t all sugar. This is a must get cereal for those who are Sesame Street fans!
