Creamy and sweet chocolate and nut oatmeal that takes just minutes to make.

This breakfast only requires 5 ingredients and under 15 minutes.

Oats are packed with nutrients and fiber and will keep you fuller longer which is why they make for a great breakfast option.

To keep it vegan, I am using non-dairy milk. If you are using sweetened non-dairy milk, I recommend skipping the maple syrup.

I am using quick cooking oats in this recipe but you can also use old-fashioned rolled oats or steel cut oats.

Oats are one of the healthiest grains and consuming oats and oatmeal has many health benefits.

They are a good source of carbs and fiber, which makes it great for a healthy digestion and also keeps us fuller longer.

Oats also contain more protein and fat than most grains!

To add more flavor and texture, chopped dark chocolate and nuts are my favorite.

You can use any nuts or seeds. For this, I am using hazelnuts but walnuts are also in my rotation.

After the hot oats are topped with the chopped chocolate and nuts, the heat melts the chocolate.

It’s almost like having a dessert for breakfast!

When consuming dark chocolate in moderation, it can be very nutritious.

It is a powerful source of antioxidants, may improve blood flow and may protect your skin from the sun!

Nuts are known as brain food as they are high in healthy fats, beneficial fiber and are a great source of many nutrients.

Done

Cook The Oats

Add the oats and milk to a small sauce pan and turn the heat to high.

Allow it to come up to a simmer then add the maple syrup.

Stirring occasionally, cook the oats for 5 minutes or until the oats have softened.

If you use old-fashioned or steel cut oats, this will take a bit longer.

Spoon the hot oatmeal into bowls then top with chopped chocolate and nuts.

The heat from the oats with melt the chocolate. Use your spoon to swirl the melted chocolate and chopped nuts into the oatmeal.
