AHHH yes, I’m back again with yet ANOTHER breakfast recipe. I have been going through my blog over the last couple of days and have realised that breakfast recipes are TOTALLY my thing, as I tend to post a ton of these! So with that being said, I think it’s only fair to share my chocolatey morning oats discovery with you, topped with banana, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries with a dollop of peanut butter and dark chocolate chips – YUMMY!
OATS (enough for 1 serving of oats)
- ½ cup raw rolled oats
- ¾ cup almond milk/milk (I used Almond Breeze)
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- a squeeze of agave nectar (for sweetness)
- ½ tsp vanilla essence
- 1 banana
- a handful of blueberries
- a handful of blackberries
- 2 strawberries
- a few almonds
- 1 tsp peanut butter (I used Wholefoods peanut butter)
- 1 tsp dark chocolate chips
To prepare this delicious brekkie, your oats will need to be made the night before and left in the fridge overnight to set. Add all of your oats ingredients listed above, mix and pour into a bowl, glass, mug or whichever display jar tickles your pickle for the morning of devouring. I know, it can be a tad stressful to decide how a beautiful breakfast should be served, but once a decision has arisen, pop into the fridge and let your oats stand overnight. Fresh toppings to be added in the morning.
Although, sometimes, one might prefer to add toppings the night before. This makes it easier to add a lid onto your jar of oats and allows for a quick grab out the fridge and off to work at whichever ungodly hour escaping needs to occur– yip, this happens to the best of us! This way, you can feel more human eating breakfast when the sun comes up – WINNING!
Add the toppings from the list above (cut your banana and strawberries into slithers) and plonk on top of your set oats, in the morning, or evening – whichever floats your boat.
Serve with your cup of morning coffee at home or the office and enjoy!
Until next time,
