Irish Cream Chocolate Oatmeal Porridge

Irish Cream Chocolate Oatmeal Porridge | All that's Jas

This Irish Cream Chocolate Oatmeal Porridge recipe is brought to us by our oatmeal friends at Flahavan’s Irish Oatmeal.

 

Creamy, healthy, and delicious, this Irish Cream chocolate oatmeal porridge is both a breakfast and a dessert.

We love all Flahavan’s naturally creamy oatmeal and this post specifically is a tribute to their steel cut oats and their St. Patrick’s Day Sweepstakes Campaign with Slow Food USA. Start your day off right with this creamy, healthy, and delicious oatmeal bowl. It is both a breakfast and a dessert. Who can argue with that?

 

When it comes to eating healthily, Flahavan’s advice is to start small. Take the time to eat a healthier breakfast. Chocolate oatmeal porridge is my number one choice every morning. It is very satisfying, and best of all it tastes great hot or cold. So I usually cook enough oatmeal to last me a few days.

 

I don’t always put Irish Cream in it. Although the amount is hardly noticeable, please replace it with milk if you’re serving this recipe to your kids. But do add it to your batch, because what better way to celebrate an Irish saint than with Irish Cream and Irish oatmeal, amirite?

 

Here comes the best part:

 

In addition to health benefits, you could win a trip for two to the Slow Food Nations festival in Denver, CO this July. You can find more details on their blog post. Make sure to share your breakfast photo and hashtag with #OatGoals #FlahavansUSA. To enter the sweepstakes go here. The winners will be announced on St. Patrick’s Day, so make sure to follow and check their sites on March 17!

 

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization that works to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions. Their goal is to counteract the rise of “fast life” mentality and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.

 

They support small-scale farmers that make fresh, natural products. Flahavan’s, Ireland’s oldest family-owned food company, has been setting a global example for healthy, sustainable food production by sourcing Barra and Husky oats from local family farms since 1785 — making their collaboration on this campaign to promote a simple and natural way to get healthier in 2018 a total no-brainer.

 

They love connecting farmers with families and we love being connected to ensure everyone has access to good, clean and fair food.

 

I’m all about easy ways to get healthy and this Irish Cream chocolate oatmeal porridge with naturally creamy Flahavan’s oats is one of the yummiest ways to get on track. You’ll also like this strawberry oatmeal cake that you can eat for breakfast guilt-free. No more excuses.

    Does the alcohol cook off – I understand that it does so when you flambe, but does it always cook out over heat?

      A small percentage of alcohol is always present even when cooked over heat. Not enough to influence anyone, but with kids, it’s better safe than sorry. I would never suggest that is OK to serve alcohol to kids in any shape or form. In this recipe, it’s not even cooked -just added at the end, so…much better for the adults, lol. But it is totally optional! 😉

    This definitely sounds good enough to be dessert, not breakfast. Your photos are wonderful, too.

    Your photos are beautiful and colorful just like this breakfast. I can’t eat that much chocolate (it’s sad) but the rest of it sounds delicious anyway.

      Not even cocoa? You could use less just for the taste. Have you tried to substitute chocolate or cocoa with carob powder? In my homeland, we use ground carob in baking pretty often. 🙂
