Chocolate Oats Pots De Creme

Long before the whole-grain fashion began I was exploring ways to eat nutritious food for pennies and in minutes, and subsist on a low-low budget. Oats and all their possibilities were, as they still are, at the top of my list.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 3 cups milk or dairy-free milk, low fat OK
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup or agave, or a little more to taste (wait till you taste the finished dessert before adding)
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee powder
  • 3 tablespoons rum or brandy
  • 1 cup coconut milk


Bring all ingredients to a boil in a saucepan.  Reduce the temperature to medium low and cook covered for about 20 minutes.  Thin with a little more milk if you like it a little looser.  Pour into a bowl, or a dozen individuals bowls and chill.

    Is this a dessert? Breakfast? Both?

  2. Ha! Amy this is the whole beauty: It is anything you want it to be: Delicious enough to be a dessert, nutritious enough to be breakfast. This is only one of my “convertibles”! wait till you see my new cookbook: Just read the blurb I wrote on this subject first http://www.levanacooks.com/my-new-cookbook-new-reprint-very-soon-please-g-d/

  3. milk and coconut milk?

  4. Yes Ahuva: correct! Recipe is tried and true: enjoy, and don’t hesitate to make it pareve by using soy, rice or almond milk

  5. Levana you are AWESOME!!! this did not disappoint – made it for breakfast this AM with agave, left out the “rum or brandy” just cause and it was still fantastic! I did low fat milk with the coconut milk and was simply divine. I didn’t add extra sweetener at the end bc had it for breakfast and wasn’t in the mood for super sweet. Thanks so much for a great recipe! I loved it!

  6. This is the treat of my lean years. Never got tired of it. Au contraire! I take it places: Breakfast, soup, side dish, fritters, dessert. There’s nothing I don’t do with oats. Even mudpack and hair rinse (these I don’t eat, don’t worry!) xoxoxo
