Chocolate Almond Oatmeal


This was breakfast this morning, and it was great!


Ok, so the picture doesn’t look that great, but I promise it was yummy.

Overnight Chocolate Almond Oatmeal

1/2 cup steel rolled oats (not quick cook, instant, etc.)

1 tsp flax meal

2 tsp cocoa powder

1 Tbs almond butter

2 tsp maple syrup

1/2 cup milk of choice (dairy, soy, almond – they all work)

Mix it all up in a bowl, jar, etc., and let it set overnight.  In the morning, give it another good stir and enjoy!  I like to warm it up and eat it that way.  The original recipe calls for 1 tsp chia seeds and cacao powder instead of cocoa powder (they are not the same thing, but cocoa made a good substitute, taste-wise).
