This recipe is insanely easy. I especially recommend it if you're new to the fabulous world of homemade porridge! The sweet richness of the Dark Chocolate almond milk gives this bowl of oats an intense, chocolaty flavor that is certain to win anyone over. This nondairy milk is heavenly, but I rarely let myself buy it because it's what I call a "frivolous purchase." However, when I do buy it, I always make sure to have bananas on hand so I can make this delightful breakfast.

There are so many beautiful things about oatmeal that make it perfect for poor college students like me. First of all, it's insanely cheap. One large container of Quaker oats, which contains around thirty(!!) servings, costs around $3. That's $3 for a month's worth of breakfasts! Second of all, you don't need fancy or expensive ingredients to make it special. A few pantry staples can whip up a fantastic bowl of porridge.
My Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal is the perfect example of this, which is probably why it's a standard in my oatmeal repertoire. I originally posted this in my list of basic oatmeal recipes on my other blog. However, I refer to it so frequently that I felt it deserved it's own post, so voila:
I had oatmeal for the first time two years ago, during my sophomore year of college. I knew I needed more soluble fiber in my diet to get my digestion issues under control, but I also wanted a low-cal option to help me lose my freshmen you-don't-even-want-to-know-how-much.
