About this Recipe
We decided to start today off with cocoa oats! Unrefined cocoa powder is a great ingredient to have in the cupboard. It is low in calories and contains flavonoids which are highly nutritious substances found in plant-based foods. It can also be added to a number of recipes and is a great way to add a delicious chocolaty flavor.
Oats have many health benefits and are very nutritious. They are a gluten-free grain, high in vitamins, fiber, minerals and antioxidants. Studies have shown that oats are good for weight loss and lowering blood sugar levels.
Chocolate porridge is best eaten when fresh.
This breakfast bowl is very easy to customize. Get creative and add your favorite toppings e.g berries, pumpkin seeds, apple slices, pomegranate seeds and more!
