Step 1

Bring water to a boil. Stir in oats, cocoa powder, coffee granules, and salt. Bring back to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until the oats reach your desired tenderness.

Step 2

Remove from the heat and stir in the sweetener.

Step 3

While the oatmeal cooks, roughly chop the mixed nuts and chocolate chips. Set aside in a small serving bowl.

Step 4

When the oatmeal is ready, serve hot with milk or cream on the side, and sprinkle with the nut and chocolate mixture.

NOTE: Oatmeal can be made ahead, put into serving bowls without the nut/chocolate topping, covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated until needed. Then warmed in the microwave until hot and topped with milk and some of the nut/chocolate topping to serve

Super rich and decadent. We loved the coffee in it. I used macadamias on half and hazelnuts on half (both were awesome). I think you could easily get away with three fourths of the cocoa and chocolate chips, and still have a delicious and dessert-y breakfast. This is definitely going to be repeated often.
