Chocolate Breakfast Oatmeal

I was wondering why don’t I ever tried to combine chocolate and oatmeal?
I always go with a simple boring oatmeal breakfast recipe or put the oatmeal on my smoothie. Until I made this chocolate breakfast oatmeal.

I can’t believe it, but using brown rice flour in water like this one makes a great breakfast recipe. Do you know how I came up with the idea? I was thinking to make it as creamy like porridge, and then my mind when to rice which is based ingredient of it, and finally came up with rice flour.

I used a tablespoon of dark cocoa powder from Hersey because I noticed that it makes the color a lot darker. I’m curious though, how do they make the dark cocoa powder darker?

Just in case anyone asks, the white grape juice sweetness the oatmeal a lot, so no, please don’t add water instead. Though, you can totally experiment with other juices, though please use 100% pure juice if you can, don’t use the ones that have added stuff like sugar or additives.
