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.

  3. Scoop into a bowl and top with a heaping spoon of preserves. Why not try my homemade jam recipes!
