Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal

Sharing is caring!

I’m back! I apologize to those of you who experienced some problem assessing this site over the last few days. I transferred to a self-hosted site and there have been a few issues. I’m very excited about all of the things I have planned, including more Back to School recipes. (just a few more kinks to work out)

I admit, Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal throws me for a loop. Breakfast isn’t supposed to be full of chocolate-y goodness, right? I prefer this for dessert buy you can eat it for breakfast and I wont say a word!

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal (single serving)


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup frozen pitted cherries
  • 1 Tbsp. vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp chia or hemp seeds (optional)


  1. Mix oats and water together and cook according to package directions.
  2. Roughly chop frozen cherries and mix into cooked oatmeal along with chocolate chips.
  3. If preferred, add maple syrup and chia or hemp seeds.


This decadent oatmeal is pretty intense. Chocolate lovers will swoon but if you aren’t ready for that much chocolate in the morning feel free to cut back or leave it out.

  1. I have to decide between breakfast & dessert? I can’t have it for BOTH? ; )

  2. Yummmmy I am so trying this…

  3. Looks great!

  4. I do things like this for my daughter sometimes. We like porridge oats with grated carrot, almond butter and a little whizzed up date for sweetness. Love the cherries here. We like smoothies with cocoa powder, frozen sour cherries, Greek yogurt and a little honey. SOur cherries are SO delicious and this looks fabulous for cooler weather breakfasting.

  5. Mmmm, chocolate and cherries are a great combination. I love things like this for breakfast that make me feel like I am eating a dessert.
