Mexican Hot Chocolate Oatmeal

This Mexican Hot Chocolate Oatmeal will warm you up from the inside out!


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder (optional)
  • 1-2 doonks stevia (or to taste; I don't like my oatmeal too sweet, and I try to avoid erythritol. If you want yours sweeter, consider adding a teaspoon of THM super sweet.)
  • 1-2 pinches mineral salt
  • 1 scoop collagen (optional, but some form of protein is recommended if you're following the THM plan)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk


  1. Dump all ingredients into a pot on the stove.

  2. Cover and cook until all the liquid is absorbed and the oatmeal looks creamy. I use old-fashioned oats (not the quick cook kind) and it takes me about 15 minutes.

  3. Pour into your bowl and enjoy! I like mine topped with nonfat Greek yogurt, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and maybe a light shaving of dark chocolate which melts so beautifully into the oatmeal.
