Chocolate Brownie oats
Serving : 1
Prep time: 5mins ; cooking time: 10mins
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup of water
1 tbsp of cacao powder
1 tbsp of maple syrup
1 smashed banana
1/4 cup + 2 tbsps of unsweetened almond milk
1 cup of raw/natural nuts (cashew / macadamia) – soaked overnight
1/4 cup of maple syrup
2 tsp of lemon juice
1 tsp of vanilla paste
Get your hands working:
Soak the raw nuts in water the night before.
Next morning, drain the soaked nuts and put all the ingredients for the “frosting” in a blender. Blend till its of a smooth consistency. You may add a splash of water to make it more runny and smooth.
In a separate pot, pour all the ingredients for the chocolate brownie oats and start stirring the mixture over medium high heat. Try not to bring the mixture to a boil. Keep stirring until the mixture gets thicken or the texture that you like your oatmeal to be in. The longer to you, the thicker the mixture gets. Normally I will keep stirring until the oatmeal starts to get thicken (approx. 5mins) then I will pour it into another bowl to stop the oatmeal from being over-cooked. Put it aside and leave it to cool for 15mins .
Next, I’ve pitted & halved 1 cup of cherries and place it in a my bowl. Assemble everything in a serving bowl,( i did mine like a parfait) and drizzled 1 scoop of frosting on top. Added some cocoa nibs, gojiberries and grated vanilla for the final touch:)
There you go:) You can never go wrong with this combination:) Soul good, so good.
