Creamy Chocolate Steel Cut Oatmeal

  • Author: Allison
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2-3 servings 1x


An indulgent yet healthy vegan breakfast of chocolate steel cut oatmeal spells out comfort on cold morning. 


  • 1 cup steel cut oats, soaked in a bowl of water overnight and drained
  • 1 tsp virgin coconut oil 
  • 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk 
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or 23 pitted Medjool dates, finely chopped 
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 


  • Nut butter
  • Dark chocolate 
  • Fruit (such as pomegranate, berries, and banana) 


  1. Warm the coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the soaked and drained oats. Toast the oats in the oil for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  2. Add the non-dairy milk, cocoa, maple syrup/dates, and a generous pinch of salt. Bring the mixture to a low boil over medium-high heat, stirring often. Then turn down heat to medium-low and cook until the porridge thickens, about 10 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and remove from heat. 
  3. Divide the porridge between 2 or 3 bowls and top with nut butter, dark chocolate, and fruit. 
  4. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge and reheat as needed.
