Oatmeal+dark chocolate+hazelnuts=perfection in a cup! For some reason, this recipe went viral on my Instagram account (@sonofasouthernchef)--maybe because people really love oatmeal! I've reconstructed my basic oatmeal by topping it with strawberries, dark chocolate, hazelnuts, honey, flaxseeds, granola, almond milk and a dash of sea salt to bring the whole darn thing together. I must admit that I am not a dark chocolate lover, and that the oatmeal taste great without it. Besides the fact that dark chocolate is full of flavonal antioxidants, it is a huge flavor weapon! What's great about any basic oatmeal is that you can add any combination of ingredients that you want. Here are three pairings that I recommend:
Coconut flakes+mango+orange zest
Below is the recipe to recreate my Monday Morning Oatmeal with Dark Chocolate and Hazelnuts. Take a picture and share it with me!
