Description

This triple chocolate protein oatmeal is a satisfying morning meal that will fill you up and satisfy your chocolate cravings in a healthy way.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (approximately 30 grams)
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • Optional toppings: Nut butter, coconut, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, fresh berries, sliced banana

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the almond milk, cocoa powder and protein powder in a small stove top pot. Bring to a low boil over medium heat.
  2. Stir the oatmeal into the chocolate mixture and continue stirring regularly for an additional three to four minutes, until the oats soften and the oatmeal thickens.
  3. Pour into a bowl, allow to cool briefly (this will also allow the oats to continue to thicken), top with desired toppings and enjoy!

Notes

For a super-fast microwavable version of this recipe, you may combine all of the ingredients in a deep, microwave safe bowl. Stir together so the powdered ingredients are moistened by the almond milk. Microwave for approximately 2-3 minutes but DO NOT WALK AWAY. Stop the microwave and stir every 30-45 seconds. If you do not stir at regular intervals, the oats will overflow. Allow the oats to rest for a few minutes before eating. (This will help them cool and thicken.) You may wish to reduce the almond milk in the microwavable version for a thicker bowl of oats. I personally prefer old fashioned oatmeal in both versions of this recipe, but I like a more textured bowl of oatmeal. For a smoother bowl of oats, I recommend using instant oatmeal.
