Chocolate Oatmeal

Vegan_Chocolate_Oatmeal_Recipe_001

Sadly, I’m still living my days eating porridge and soft foods because my teeth is still quite sore!

But great news is, it totally inspires me to make all these things I have been meaning to for a while but never got around to it. One of the things I always wanted to try was a chocolate oatmeal. I managed to make it without adding any extra sugar. The grape juice and applesauce are the main sweeteners and I really think the amount is just right for me.

AHHH I LOVE THE TASTE OF CHOCOLATE OATMEAL! It’s almost reminds me of thick chocolate milk!

For mine, I added a tiny bit of cacao nibs and Enjoy Life chocolate chips as topping, just to make it really rich and chocolatey. Also, I only added one tablespoon of cacao powder but you may like to add more for a stronger chocolate taste.

Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and give it a very good stir.

Cook the oatmeal on high for about 8 minutes, then simmer in medium low (3-4) for an extra 5minutes or so until the oatmeal becomes nice and thick.

    Love your post about the sugary cereals. I have four kids and finding the right food to start their day off is so important! Have you ever tried Dee’s Cereal? There are 18 all natural ingredients inside. There are many ways to prepare it and adding to recipes sneaks in the healthy goods! I thought I would share!
