Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast? This Chocolate Almond Oatmeal is packed with superfood nutrition. Quick, easy and perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch.
I just happen to love overnight oats. You can add so many wonderful ingredients and make it different each time. Ready and waiting for you, making your mornings a little easier to deal with. It’s perfect to take with you on the go, or even for your break or lunch.
This is such a quick and easy dish to throw together the night before. I like to make enough to last for a few days. It really is a multi-purpose meal since I find myself eating it at different times of the day because it is so convenient.
If you love the taste of chocolate then this is for you. The best part is that it contains cacao so you get that awesome dark chocolate taste with all the extra nutritional benefits like antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Goji berries another superfood adds a bit of texture, colour, fibre, vitamins A and C and beta-carotene. Since this would be rather tart without any sweetness, using organic raw honey is the perfect way to sweeten this power packed meal.
For the milk I chose unsweetened almond milk, but you are free to use whichever milk you prefer, even regular organic milk works great. Since this is a pretty easy and uncomplicated recipe, experiment with coconut, hemp or soy milk if you like.
Steel cut oats are great and the texture of them works really well in this recipe. I used the quick cooking variety, but you can also use regular steel cut oats, or even old fashioned oats. If you are looking to make this gluten free just be sure to use gluten free oats and you are good to go.
It really does not get easier than mixing everything in a bowl, cover, place in the fridge overnight … that’s it!! Breakfast is waiting for you. I can’t think of a better way to get your day started than eating this healthy nutritious meal. Add a few fresh berries and enjoy!
