Chocolate Oats

My beautiful sister in law shared this recipe with me recently. Its a game changer! So good for those days when you crave some chocolate! It can be eaten anytime of the day as breakfast, snack, or even a dessert as a choc self-sauce pudding substitute.



INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup of wholegrain oats

1/2 to 1 cup of milk of choice (I like coconut and almond milk)

1 Tbsp of cacao powder

1-2 tsp of sweetener of choice (I use maple syrup or monkfruit)


METHOD

1. Add the oats and cacao powder into a bowl and stir together.

2. Cover the dry mixture with milk and add your sweetener - stir again until the cacao powder has dissolved into the milk.

3. Place in the microwave in 1 min bursts, removing, stirring, and repeating; until the liquid has

absorbed and you have a chocolate pudding / porridge consistency (usually takes around 3-4 mins).


Serve with your favourite toppings and enjoy. My two favourite ways are to top it with coconut

yoghurt and freeze-dried raspberries or sliced banana, chopped pecans or walnuts and a tablespoon

of peanut butter.


DELICIOUS!
