Chocoholic Breakfast Oats

Totally decadent and healthy Chocolate Breakfast Oats. Quick & Simple, Vegan, Sugar-Free, No cooking required! www.LipstickandBerries.com

One of the most exciting things about eating vegan is that you can eat dessert for breakfast and it’s totally rational! I discovered unsweetened cocoa powder once I became vegan, and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I love that I can make delicious recipes without sugar but still have that delicious chocolate flavor. Raw Cacao adds an unexpected crunch, and really makes this oatmeal addictive.

Raw oats are very nutritious and they actually keep you full longer than cooked oats because your body has to take more time to digest them.  Oats are very economical and high in the soluble fiber, beta-glucan. They are also a nice source of plant based fat. Want one more reason to eat your daily oats? Ok, you got it! They are proven to lower bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol, and maintain a healthy circulatory system!

1/4 Cup Uncooked, Gluten-Free, Old Fashioned Oats

1/4 Cup Applesauce, unsweetened

1/4 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk, unsweetened
