Happy Wednesday loves! So good to be back - and today I have a recipe to share!
Promise I'll bring in the veggies next week ;)
The best thing is that oats are so versatile you can add in and top it with almost anything and it'll turn out great...
Well most of the time.
And this is one of those times.
I'm pretty sure I've had this combination for breakfast for 1 week straight! I am not a big coffee drinker, but chocolate makes everything great: True story.
Mocha oats topped with blueberries, peanut butter granola, and chocolate peanut butter
Ingredients (serves 1)
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup milk (I use either full fat, or 2%)
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 banana
- 1 heaping tsp instant coffee (I use original Nescafe classic)
- 1 heaping tsp cocoa powder
- ~2 tbsp hot water
- stevia/honey/sugar to taste
Add oats and milk to a pot and keep on medium heat. Stir in chia seeds. Bring to a boil.
In a separate small bowl, add coffee and cocoa powder to hot water and stir to dissolve. Set aside.
Thinly slice half the banana into the pot. Stir oats well.
Once oats are thickened up, stir in coffee/cocoa mixture to pot. Add your choice of sweetener.
Add the rest of the banana - sliced normally - and turn off the stove.
