Oh my goodness, yes! In just 15 minutes, you can make this decadent-yet-good-for-you chocolate oatmeal.
It’s like dessert for breakfast!
This is when I want to eat dessert but I actually need to eat something that’s not 50,000 calories, which is my whole life calorie count!!
I don’t let chance dictate whether my day gets off to a good start. I’d rather make sure it’ll be a good day…
By consuming chocolate first thing!
This Chocolate oatmeal is the thing you need. Cocoa powder and bananas make this rich and chocolatey without tons of sugar. A dash of cinnamon warms up the flavour making it so wholesome and filling. And of course the chocolate chips?
It’s a dessert lover’s dream.
Often, chocolate oatmeal means mixing a spoonful of chocolate peanut butter into my morning oatmeal or cutting a big chunk off a 100% chocolate bar to eat on the side of whatever oatmeal breakfast one might be having.
But these are a serious chocolate fix and so wholesome to keep you smiling all morning.
It’s not possible to eat chocolate and frown at the same time. Really, it’s not. Try it!
Am I wrong? Can you do it?
Well, then at least I got you to eat some chocolate!
