S'mores Oatmeal - HG style!

Can you believe that this yummy goodness is oatmeal?  How about can you believe that it is around 300 calories? I have to admit that I was also very surprised.  When I first came across this recipe in the new cookbook I was shocked for several reasons...
1. who puts hot cocoa mix in oatmeal,
2. who would put marshmallows in their oatmeal, and
3. Graham crackers - really!

I am a newbie to cooking oatmeal but low and behold it is quite simple (just takes about 15 minutes).
The recipe calls for a diet hot cocoa mix (25 calories), almond milk vanilla flavored, old fashioned oats, marshmallows, graham cracker, chocolate chips.

Put it all together and you have yourself a delicious treat.  When we had it for the first time I felt like I was consuming a bowl of fresh cook pudding.  I am a sucker for warm chocolate pudding.

Hungry Girl Cook Book

I was surfing the net (go figure right) and several times have come across things referring to Hungry Girl.  I decided to search on Amazon and find a copy of one of her cookbooks.  With Hubby and I wanting to eat better and try to shed the pounds (again) I was like lets go for it.  We came up with the idea that we would try to make each recipe at least once...and with that being said I plan on blogging my experiences and thoughts about each one.

So please come with us on this culinary journey while we explore the world of Hungry Girl recipes (oh I will still be posting about other things too - just to keep you on your toes)!

Smiles :)
