Healthy Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • cup plant based milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
  • 2 tbsp flax seed meal – optional
  • ¼ cup vegan dark chocolate chunks
  • flakey sea salt – for topping

Healthy caramel

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp almond butter

Instructions

  • Combine the rolled oats and water, let sit for 10 minutes (optional, but makes for creamier, fluffier oats). I like to do this in the pot, so that I don't dirty more bowls.
  • While that is sitting, make the caramel by melting the coconut oil in a glass container. Add in the maple syrup and almond butter, stir until combined. Set aside.
  • Continue making the oats by adding in the milk and cook everything in a pot over medium low heat. Stir in the cocoa, vanilla and flax seed meal. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Once nice and fluffy, split the oatmeal between 2 bowls.
  • Top the oats with the caramel you prepared and top each with chocolate chunks and a pinch of flakey sea salt
