In a small mixing bowl, whisk, rolled oats, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, cinnamon, and salt if used. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, add almond milk and cold water and bring to a light boil.
Reduce to low heat and stir in the dry ingredients mixed before. Cook, stirring occasionally until all the liquid is almost absorbed by the oats and the texture of the oats softens.
Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla, and maple syrup if desired. Cover and set aside for a few minutes until creamy and thick.
Serve with chocolate chips, strawberries, a drizzle of peanut butter, or coconut yogurt and coconut flakes.
In a microwave-safe bowl, stir quick oat (quick oats cook better in the microwave than rolled oats), cocoa powder, chocolate chips, cinnamon, and salt if used. Then, stir in liquid ingredients: almond milk and water.
Microwave in bursts of 1 minute, stir and check the consistency. Stop when the texture is creamy, and the liquid has evaporated. It generally takes the same time as in a saucepan or 2-3 minutes.
Set aside a few minutes and stir maple syrup before serving to boost sweetness if desired.
