What are you having for breakfast?!?! I’ve been all about the big bowl of chocolate tahini oats this week. For the chocolate flavor I used cacao powder but feel free to use cocoa powder or even chocolate protein powder. On a side not here are a few cacao benefits in case you’re wondering:
▪️rich source of antioxidants
▪️nutrient dense with magnesium, potassium & iron
▪️good source of fiber for the gut
Cacao has a bitter taste so I think it’s best paired with a natural sweetener. I added monk fruit maple syrup for this recipe. See recipe below.
Chocolate Tahini Oats Bowl
🔸1/2 cup rolled oats
🔸heaping 1 tbsp cacao powder
🔸1-2 tbsp monk fruit maple syrup (or honey)
🔸pinch of salt 🔸dash cinnamon
🔸splash of almond milk
🔸1 tbsp tahini
Serves 1: Cook oats according to instructions on package. Once water is a absorbed, reduce heat and stir in cacao, sweetener, salt, cinnamon. Cook for another five minutes so the flavors are well combined. Add to bowl, drizzle in tahini, top with berries and a splash almond milk.
