I sometimes make chocolate oats as a single bowl, but I've never made a whole batch like this. I was a little afraid that I wouldn't have enough ideas for what to mix in and I'd get bored with the flavor, but I totally loved it. My favorite mix-in was raisins, it like a bowl full of Raisinets candy! The pear was a little overwhelmed by the powerful chocolate flavor, so next time I'll stick with raisins and maybe some diced apple and peanut butter. Banana would also be good. I also love spicy Mayan oatmeal, with a dash or two of cayenne and a heavy dash of cinnamon.
I think steel-cut oats in the slow cooker is going to be my go-to oatmeal/porridge recipe for the fall and winter. Making a large batch for several days and waking up to the scent of breakfast is so comforting.
