Mocha Crunch Oatmeal

As soon as I saw this recipe, I KNEW I had to make it. It had everything I love, in one bowl. Chocolate, espresso, steel cut oats, almonds, and nutella. Okay, so the nutella was my addition, and WOW was it a good one. With a stir of my spoon I got a breakfast that tasted borderline like a dessert, but was rich, healthy, and filling.


Mocha Crunch Oatmeal

Serves 2-4. Adapted from TheKitchn


3 cups water
1 cup steel-cut oats
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons instant espresso
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sugar or agave nectar, (or amount of a zero calorie natural sweetner of your choice)
Toppings (optional): chocolate chips, chopped nuts (I used these cocoa roast almonds), nutella, cream or milk


Bring water to a boil. Stir in oats, salt, espresso and cocoa powder. Bring back to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until the oats reach your desired consistency. Remove from heat and stir in the sweetener. Transfer to bowls and add toppings.
