This is a breakfast favorite for our children. They always ask for seconds! I usually make with Old Fashioned Irish Oats or Scottish Porridge. Just adjust the water/milk content to cook oats thoroughly when not using instant oats.

How to Make Cocoa Oatmeal with Fresh Fruit Preserves

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small pot, whisk all the ingredients, save the preserves. Do this over a medium to high heat. You may add more or less water depending on how thick you prefer your oatmeal.
  2. Lower heat to low, continue to cook covered, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  3. Scoop into a bowl and top with a heaping spoon of preserves. Why not try my homemade jam recipes!
