Description

Delicious creamy zesty chocolatey oatmeal. The ultimate comfort food!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tsp orange zest (from organic very well washed oranges)
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (about 2 oranges)
  • 1 cup almond milk or other plant-based milk (plus more if needed)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder (or vanilla extract)
  • 2-3 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • possible toppings: berries, kiwi, hazelnut or almond butter, cacao nibs, goji berries, nuts, seeds, etc.

Instructions

  1. Put the orange zest, orange juice, and almond milk into a medium-sized pot and bring to a boil over high heat. When almost boiling, stir in the oats, lower the heat and cook on low/medium until thick and creamy (about 10 minutes) and add more milk if it starts sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  2. Turn off the heat, add the maple syrup, vanilla powder, cacao powder, cinnamon and mix well.
  3. Taste and add more sweetener or cacao as desired.
  4. Serve topped with berries, nut butter, or other toppings of choice.
