½tbspseed mix (flax, chia, hemp hearts)use what you have!
1-2tspmaple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
optional: chocolate chips or syrup for topping
In a saucepan, mix together the oats, milk, and salt.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat and allow the oats to begin absorbing the milk. Stir occasionally to prevent burning to the pan. About 5 minutes.
As the mixture thickens, add cocoa powder, coconut, almonds, and any seeds. I use a blend of chia, ground flax, and hemp hearts, but any of these are good. They just add some extra fiber and good fats.
Continue to cook until the mixture reaches your desired consistency. This generally takes about 5 minutes. Give it a taste and add any sweetener you'd like.
Spoon into a serving bowl and top with additional shredded coconut, chopped almonds, and any chocolate drizzle or chocolate chips. Enjoy!
Cacao powder can be used in place of cocoa. I prefer cacao for the less processed version.You can use other oats but the amount of milk will be different. Start with a little less and add as needed.You can use chocolate chips in place of cocoa for a more candy bar flavor, but wait to add them until the end so the chocolate doesn't burn to the pan.
