Double-Chocolate Mango Oatmeal with Toasted Coconut

What kind of recipe-creator would I be if I didn't take some risks? Chocolate and mango are not often paired together, but it has been done. For example, there's chocolate-covered mango, this chocolate-mango loaf cake, this coconut mango cashew chocolate bark, or Oatgasm's Chocolate Chili Mango Baked Oatmeal.


I was in the mood for peanut butter when I made this, so I found a way to include that as well. I actually made Happy Herbivore's Nutty Spread, but instead of adding cinnamon, I added cocoa powder. I love Nutty Spread because it gives me less of a tummy ache than pure peanut butter, and it can be supped in for peanut butter in most situations.


This is a unique recipe for the adventurous ones. For a triple-chocolate experience, add chocolate chips!

Double-Chocolate Mango Oatmeal with Toasted Coconut

by The Oatmeal Artist
Prep Time: 2 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 1 cup milk of choice, or water
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen diced mango
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tbsp chocolate nut butter
  • toasted coconut
Instructions
  1. Bring milk (I use 1/2 c almond milk and 1/2 c water) to a boil, add oats, and reduce heat to medium. (If you'd like to add a teaspoon of flax or chia seeds, do so now.)
  2. Add mango right away.
  3. Once more of the liquid has absorbed, add vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir.
  4. When you're pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Add a splash of your milk of choice, a scoop (or swirl) of chocolate nut butter, toasted coconut, and any other additional toppings (nuts, chocolate chips, more mango, etc.).

  1. This looks delicious. I love oatmeal! It's been my secret ingredient in savory dishes for years. So just thought I give you a hint, since it seems you covered anything you could possibly do with oatmeal on the sweet side. Oatmeal is the best binder ever and I use it in meatloaf, meatballs, salisbury steak to name a few. If you're looking to branch out that should give you a few ideas on the savory end. Once you try it, you'll realize there's a whole new world to using oatmeal. Great blog. Love it!
