Chocolate for breakfast?  And its good for you?  Yes, please!!  This baked chocolate oatmeal is low in calories, fat, and cholesterol and full of protein and fiber.  Serve warm with a little nonfat milk and a spoonful of peanut butter and you’ll be good to go!  I actually made mine with no added sugar and didn’t miss it, but if you like things a little sweeter I’d recommend adding the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.  Make this soon and treat yourself to chocolate for breakfast without feeling guilty!
