Chocolate Strawberry Oats (Vegan/GF/Refined Sugar Free)

IMG_4930

If you have followed my blog for at least a minute, you have been made aware of my intense love of all things chocolate. Although I do my best to limit its intake, and make sure to mainly use raw, unrefined, unsweetened cocoa…I do probably eat something chocolate at least once a day.

Sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the evening, sometimes all day long. The other day I had a mad hankering for chocolate as I woke up to thunder and lighting and to make my world a little brighter, I made this:

Chocolaty Strawberry Oats

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ½ sliced banana
  • 1 tbsp coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp honey (you can use agave or maple syrup)
  • 5 chopped strawberries

Toppings:

  • Sliced strawberries
  • Cocoa nibs
  • Coconut milk (full fat)

Instructions:

  • Place the oats and almond milk over medium heat in a medium saucepan.
  • Stir for about 2 minutes and add in the other ingredients
  • Stir for another 4-5 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed (cooking time generally depends on the size and texture of the oats)
  • Top, serve and enjoy!!
