Chocolate oats recipe with video – Chocolate oatmeal has been one of our most favorite oatmeal dishes for sometime now. This savory vegetable oats porridge is been made in my home for several years for our Sunday breakfast.
For a change I make this delicious chocolate oats which can be made under 5 to 7 mins. It turns out very delicious and I am sure it will be loved by most kids too. It is slightly on the heavier side and keeps us full till noon.
To make chocolate oats recipe, I cook the oats in full fat milk and then garnish with chopped chocolate and nuts. For a more intense chocolate flavor and to make it healthier, you can also add little cocoa powder or good quality unsweetened dark chocolate or cocao nibs to the oats while cooking. This way you can use a better and healthier alternates to sugar like maple syrup or coconut palm sugar.
