The perfect Valentine's Day healthy breakfast-in-bed treat - oatmeal made with rolled oats, unsweetened cocoa, flax seed meal, and fresh strawberries.
- 1/2 cup (40g) rolled oats
- 1-1/2 cup water
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 medium banana, sliced into thin pieces
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1.5 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- pinch cinnamon
- 1 tbsp flax seed meal
- 1 tsp stevia + 1/8 tsp stevia (or sweetener of your choosing)
- 1/2 cup strawberries
In a small bowl, mash up fresh strawberries and 1/8 tsp stevia. Set aside. In a medium size pan, heat the oats, water, and salt over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to simmer, approximately 5-6 minutes, stir in the sliced banana.
Continue to stir until the banana breaks down and the mixture thickens. Add the vanilla, cocoa powder, cinnamon, flax seed meal, and stevia, and stir until incorporated. Pour oats into a serving bowl and top with smashed strawberries.
