We’ve Made The Perfect Oatmeal!

Estimated reading time: 1 minute(s)

If you’ve been on Instagram or TikTok lately you’ve likely seen that Oatmeal is becoming quite a competitive trend amongst foodies. It is an endless stream of who can get the best looking yet best tasting bowl.  

There are no limits; fruit, chocolate, seeds, nuts… you can try it all! There is an art though to finding the right combo of toppings. You need texture, flavor, and color and that is not as easy as it sounds. 

Betting on Chocolate 

My version today is the perfect bowl for chocolate lovers. Chocolate oatmeal, chocolate protein powder, a chocolate bar, and chocolate-covered peanuts!! What more could you ask for?  It’s hard to really describe the taste of this combo of chocolate flavors but I can assure you it is unbelievable. If you like chocolate, you’ve got to try this. 

The most important key to this oatmeal is to choose good quality chocolate, like the ones I’ve used in my recipe: made with natural cocoa and no added sugar or sweeteners. 

If you are still a non-believer I challenge you to try these

More must-have toppings 

Throw in some fruit. Not only does this add color to your breakfast bowl, but it also adds are nutrients and vitamins. The best fruits to combine with oatmeal are the ones that are sweet and dense like- banana, papaya, figs, peach, persimmon, plum…

I use good granola to get a nice crunchy touch This Cocoa and Quinoa one is packed with nutrients that provide you with energy for the whole day. 

And lastly, a little creamy touch that thanks to a spoonful of hazelnut spread. The hazelnut combined with the chocolate is to die for.

  1. Mix the chia seeds together with the oats and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Cover with water and simmer for 5 minutes.

  2. Add the chocolate oat powder, chocolate protein, and milk. Cook for 2 more minutes.

  3. Adjust the texture to your liking. If you prefer it to be more liquidy just add more milk.

  4. Garnish with toppings. I used some fruit, hazelnut spread, some cocoa nuts and sprinkled a little more cocoa powder for a finishing touch.
