Do you ever wake up saying to yourself.."I really wish I could have chocolate chip cookie dough for breakfast AND still be healthy." This is pretty much my thought every morning. I mean sure, you could crack open a roll of cookie dough and tall glass of milk and belly up to a cookie buffet each AM, but maybe it' the best option in the name of health.
So how about my favorite breakfast canvas of Oatmeal! For those of you who aren't sure about oatmeal, prepare to be saved!
Here are 2 ways to prepare a bowl full of chocolate chip dough oats. Hot or Cold? You decide! Either way I know you'll enjoy.Print
Now i usually add some additional milk or water the next morning, but I wanted the oats to be extra thick and creamy like cookie dough so I left it out. I was amazed how good these were. I apologize for no photos but they don't look to un-similar to the hot oats. Just...cold.
Stovetop Cookie Dough Oats
½ c oats
½ c unsweetened soymilk
½ c water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 T mini chocolate chips
Heat the milk, water, and salt on the stove over medium high heat in a small saucepan. Once it starts to boil, add oats and cook for 5-7 minutes. I cooked mine longer so they would thicken up, but this can also be done by adding less water at the beginning.
Once oats are cooked, remove from heat and add vanilla and brown sugar. Transfer to bowl.
Stir in ½ the chocolate chips and top with the remaining.
I loved the way the chocolate chips melted into the oats in this version. It reminded me of when you first take the cookies out of the oven, and take the first bite. Heaven.
So depending on the weather and your mood, you can have cookie dough for breakfast 2 ways.
