Oatmeal with Dark Chocolate Chips, Cherries, Flax Seeds, and Pumpkin Seeds.

Dessert for Breakfast: Oatmeal with Dark Chocolate Chips, Cherries, Flax Seeds, and Pumpkin Seeds.

Let me put this out there early on in this blog: I hate breakfast. I dislike most “breakfasty” type foods. If I can wait until lunchtime to eat, I do. If it’s anywhere close to noon, I will hem and haw until a feasible lunch time rolls around.

There are those times when it’s 8 or 9 am, I’m starving, and there is nothing in the house for me to eat, so I must look to a breakfast food. A breakfast food that is quick and easy to assemble as well as easy for me to get down without gagging.

Last week, after one such day, I stumbled upon this beauty. Not only is this oatmeal quick and easy, but it is absolutely delicious!!!! I find myself looking forward to breakfast when I awake.


Dark Chocolate Chips, Raw Pumpkin Seeds, Dried Cherries, and Golden Flax

You probably know oatmeal and flax are great for boosting milk supply, but were you aware that cherries promote let down? Chocolate can go one way or the other, so if you are plagued with low milk supply, you might want to test it out. I never found it to be detrimental in my case. Although, it did increase my happiness factor. 🙂


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup whole milk (MAKE IT VEGAN – kill the milk and replace with water)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup oatmeal**
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • handful of dried cherries**
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • raw pumpkin seeds**, flax seeds**, and dark chocolate chips for sprinkling

**lactation boosters

Over medium heat, bring water, whole milk, and salt to a boil. Add oatmeal, cherries, and agave, lower heat to low and stir. Let cook uncovered for the length of time your oatmeal requires (quick oats 5 min., thick cut 10-20 min, steel cut 20-30 min) stirring occasionally. When the oatmeal is finished cooking stir in vanilla extract. Put into a bowl or two if you’re sharing. Top with flax seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, and dark chocolate chips.
