Chocolate Mocha Oatmeal

It sounds and looks like dessert but it’s actually healthy! It’s Starch Solution friendly, Oil Free, Gluten Free, Plant Based and delicious. The addition of the coffee, although a small amount intensifies the chocolate. This is a quick and simple breakfast but just top with some banana, peanut butter, nuts or just use your imagination. If your making this for the children, leave the instant coffee out, it will be just as delicious and they will think it’s dessert and not a healthy breakfast.
