Hot Chocolate Oatmeal

January is National Oatmeal Month. I love oatmeal and I created this dish to celebrate the two things I love the most in January, hot chocolate and oatmeal.  Two of my favorite most comforting foods!

Oats are a whole-grain food. Oat groats are the whole form of oats and take a long time to cook.  Most of us prefer rolled, crushed, or steel-cut oats.  My personal taste preference is steel-cut oats, but I like oatmeal in a variety of forms.  Instant oats are the most highly processed and give the consumer a more mushy texture.  Sometimes oatmeal is called porridge.  I used to love to read about porridge as a kid in my novels.  Oats can be in all kinds of baked goods and I particularly like them in granola and cookies!
