CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT PROTEIN OATS
Dessert for breakfast? Erm, yes please! If you’re like me and love something sweet for breakfast, this chocolatey, nutty, protein-rich oatmeal recipe is the perfect cure for any sweet craving. Not only does it taste amazing, but it is also low in sugar, high in fibre and packed full of protein.
SERVES 1 50g oats 1 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder 250ml almond milk or water 1 tbsp chocolate protein powder (see PS, right) handful of hazelnuts, roughly chopped 1 square 85 per cent dark chocolate, grated
1 Combine the oats and cacao powder in a microwaveable bowl and then pour in the milk or water. Microwave for 2-3 minutes until cooked. Stir. 2 Add the protein powder and stir well, adding more milk or water if necessary. 3 Sprinkle the chopped nuts and grated chocolate on top before serving.
PS… The protein powder may be omitted entirely or substituted with extra cacao powder, though the dish will become less protein-rich.
