Orange oatmeal with berries and chocolate topping

Orange oatmeal with berries and chocolate topping

I love eating an oatmeal for breakfast. It’s easy to make and it keeps me full until lunch. Eating classic plain oatmeals could get boring quickly so I always try to come up with new flavors. One of them is this tasty orange oatmeal topped with my favourite ingredients – chocolate granola, berries and chia seeds. An orange juice adds something a little special to ordinary breakfast meal and always freshens up my morning.

Ingredients

Serves 1-2

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup water (or a little more if you like thinner oatmeal)
  • juice from 1/2 orange
  • 1 tbsp dried shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla sugar, vanilla bean)

For topping:

  • slices from the second half of orange
  • chocolate granola (you can find recipe here: http://cakesnsteaks.com/chocolate-granola )or dark chocolate
  • fruits of your choice (I love this oatmeal with berries)
  • seeds of your choice (I used chia seeds)

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring oats, coconut, water, and orange juice to a boil while stirring frequently. Stir in agave syrup and vanilla. Cook for at least 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Transfer the oatmeal into a bowl. To serve, top with orange slices and your favourite fruits. Then sprinkle chia seeds and chocolate granola on top.
