German Chocolate Dessert Oatmeal

Oatmeal is that you? You're virtually unrecognizable!
Sometimes I wake up craving cake, but don't have the energy necessary to bake in the A.M. 
So manipulating oatmeal to suit chocoholic desires for that cake I'm too lazy to create, I boiled my lovely pot of typical almond milk (any nondairy milk alternative will do here too), added oats, sweetness, and seasonings and topped it all off shredded coconut (which can be toasted if desired), a blend of nuts, and sadly the last of sweet miniature chocolate chips for a reminiscent appealing taste of German Chocolate yum. Deliciously engaging and filled with enticing, flavorful textures, this oatmeal is a real morning pick me up! 

German Chocolate Dessert Oatmeal Ingredients and Preparation

2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of ginger
pinch of salt
1/2 cup walnuts & pecans
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
handful Enjoy Life Food's miniature chocolate chips (or any other brand)

Bring milk to a boil.
Stir in the rolled oats, cocoa powder, agave nectar, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and salt.
Cook for 5 minutes.
Pour oatmeal into a bowl and top with remaining ingredients.
Serve.  

Bliss for any chocoholic.
Can one really handle all this in a single bowl? Doubt it. :D
