Chocolate Almond Butter Oatmeal with Bananas

This was a yummy way to eat oatmeal for breakfast. It also made a nice snack tonight. I love the flavors all put together. It left me feeling very satisfied. I am hoping my son will want it for breakfast too. It is a great way to get his day started.

 Ingredients: serves 5-6 store leftovers in covered containers in the fridge.
2 C water
2 C almond Milk or another milk
1 T coconut oil * op
2 C oatmeal (I used 6 grain rolled oatmeal)
3 T unsweetened cocoa
3T almond butter or peanut butter
2-3 T honey 
1 tsp almond extract * optional
topping options: fresh  bananas, fresh fruit, or chocolate chips :)
Drizzle on some additional milk. 

1. Boil water and then add milk and *oil. Stir in oatmeal. Bring to low boil.

2. Stir in cocoa, butter, almond extract* and honey.  Turn down the heat to low. Let the oatmeal mixture thicken until it gets to  your desired consistency.   

3. Serve in bowls and put on your favorite topping.
