Mix together the cocoa powder in 1/2 cup water until the cocoa powder is dissolved and smooth.
Add the cocoa powder mixture to a medium saucepan, along with the milk, remaining 1/2 cup of water, and maple syrup. Bring the mixture to a boil, while whisking frequently, to not scorch the milk.
Stir in the oats and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 5 minutes or until the oats are thickened and creamy. Turn off heat.
Stir in vanilla and a dash of salt. Top with marshmallows if desired.
Use any milk you like for this chocolate oatmeal. I have used regular milk, coconut milk and almond milk with great success.
I only needed to add 1/4 cup maple syrup to this recipe for Chocolate Oatmeal. If you are used to really sweet things, you can increase the maple syrup up to 1/3 cup.
