Recipe: Chilli Chocolate Oats


Sometimes regular breakfasts can be boring and just don't cut it (especially on days off), and once in a while it's good to have something that seems like a treat. This sort of a combo really spices up a regular breakfast... the pun was most definitely intended. Some people may find it surprising that majority of the calories in this meal come from the oats, not the chocolate or milk! The ingredients that I've incorporated are vegan-friendly and lower in calories than their 'usual' alternatives, if you happen to replace them (e.g. unsweetened baking chocolate with regular chocolate chips and almond milk with regular cows milk) the calorie count will be much, much higher.
