Mmmm…. chocolate for breakfast? Yes, please! Especially when it’s part of something nutritious and filling like Chocolate Pecan Praline Oats – one of many amazing oats recipes from Lauren over at Sweat the Sweet Stuff. Check out her blog for lots of creative twists on this old breakfast favorite.
Like they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I agree! My favorite way to start the day is with a bowl of oats! My special way of making it includes chia seeds and egg whites. It provides you with fiber, protein, complex carbs & healthy fats. It tastes delicious and keeps you full for hours. I hope you include oatmeal in your breakfast rotation. If not you’ll want to start after seeing some these yummy concoctions!
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 cup water
Microwave 1 min. add 1/4 cup liquid egg whites,
stir & microwave another 30 sec.
In a small pan on medium add 1 tbsp coconut oil.
Once melted add 1/4 cup pecans & 1 tbsp sugar free maple syrup.
Stir and reduce to simmer for a minute or two and voila! Simple as that!
Top over oats and enjoy!
