Chocolate Almond Butter Oats (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Chocolate Oats

Chocolate Almond Butter Oats (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This recipe is one of my favourite porridge recipes. It takes 10 minutes in total and whilst it looks and tastes as indulgent as a gooey chocolate brownie, it is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and slow energy releasing ingredients and protein, such as coconut oil and almond butter

I like to head to the gym in the morning and this is a great protein boast for when I get home. Mr. B. is less mobile in the mornings, but since this breakfast imitates the elements of a dessert, it is great motivation to coax him out of bed!

This recipe is adapted from ‘this rawsome vegan life’ blog; a blog dedicated to vegan breakfasts, desserts and smoothies
