Chocolate Almond Oatmeal

As much as oatmeal one of my staple breakfasts, is a fantastic source of fibre and protein and a high energy and filling way to start your day, sometimes it needs a little kick to make the morning really start with a bang.

And since I don’t drink coffee anymore this is a great way for me to get a bit of a caffeine jump start too.

Chocolate Almond Oatmeal

1/3 cup steel cut or old fashioned oats (NO instant!)
1 cup soy milk
10 vegan chocolate chips
Handful slivered almonds

In a small saucepan, bring oats and soy milk to a boil
Turn heat down to medium and stir continually for about 2 minutes or until almost all the milk has been absorbed
Add in chocolate chips, stirring to melt

I top with a bit more soymik and almonds
