Dark Chocolate & Coconut Cake Oatmeal

Make dessert for breakfast with all the flavors of a chocolate and coconut cake in a hearty oatmeal.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, plus more for drizzle
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup coconut chips, toasted for garnish
  • Dark chocolate bar, thinly shaved for garnish
  • Blackberries, for garnish

Steps

  1. In a medium-sized, high-sided sauce pot, combine the coconut milk, cacao powder, cinnamon, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt. Whisk together and bring to a simmer.
  2. Add the oats and coconut flakes. Stir to combine, and keep on a low simmer. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring often, until the oats are tender and most of the liquid has absorbed.
  3. To serve, place some into a shallow bowl and top with a few toasted coconut chips, dark chocolate shavings and fresh blackberries.
