1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup milk +
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 & 1/2 tablespoon no sugar added applesauce
1. Combine all ingredients in a small pot.
2. Cook over medium high heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
*I added additional milk as the oatmeal cooked to get it to the consistency Princess P likes – I also let it stay a little thicker as it finished cooking so I could add additional milk right before I served it to her to help it cool down quicker.
* This recipe made enough for her to have breakfast for 2 days.
