Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast? This is another fantastic oatmeal variation. You can find bags of frozen dark cherries at Trader Joe’s. I use them directly from the freezer without defrosting. There’s no need to feel guilty about the chocolate either since 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder only has 20 calories. Enjoy!

1/2 c. oats
1 c. skim milk
1/4 c. cherries
1 T unsweetened cocoa powder
Sugar or Splenda to taste

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until the oats reach the desired consistency.

    Trader Joes cherries are the best! Excellent in Jello.
