Creamy Dark Chocolate Oats
RECIPE BY ALINA FROM @PLANTBASEDALINA
Ultra rich and decadent breakfast bowl in the morning is just how we love to start our day, because nothing is more comforting and filling than a bowl of chocolate oats.
- 1 cup oats of choice
- 1 cup oat milk
- 1 cup water
- 2-3 tbsp cacao powder
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- a pinch of sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp shiitake powder (optional)
- 1/3 cup raisins
- In a small sauce pan, pour in the oat milk and water. Pour in the rest of the ingredients and simmer until oats are cooked, soft and creamy.
- Let it cool for a few minutes and serve in your Coconut Bowls, and top with your choice of toppings. I used sliced persimmon here! But you can top this with any kind of fresh or frozen fruit that you love.
