Chocolate + Banana Oatmeal

No added sugar here - all the sugary work is done by a ripe banana.  So don't throw out those heavily spotted bananas - they're super sweet and perfect for smashing into this breakfast.  

I've mentioned once or twice on here of my struggle to have breakfast every morning but I've been eating this one (tho sometimes minus the cocoa) for the last couple weeks.  I like it.  Not too sweet and the oats keep me feeling satisfied until lunch time.  It's also really quick:  about a minute to throw it together and another 2 in the microwave.  Hope you enjoy it!
