Is it bad that I woke up with a smile on my face? After constantly being reminded at work yesterday that it was only Thursday, I couldn’t wait until today to enjoy my third Chocolate Friday! Is it even worse that I woke up and headed straight to the grocery store to pick up some Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder?
I whipped up some oats and started off the day with some chocolately goodness. You better believe there will be chocolate incorporated into every meal today.
Almond Joy Oats
- 1/3 cup oats
- 2/3 cup almond milk (unsweetened vanilla)
- 1 Tbsp dark cocoa powder
- 1 Tbsp sweetened shredded coconut
Cooked this on the stovetop for about 5 minutes and stopped it before the liquid was all absorbed-i LOVE liquidy oats!
Then I added:
- 1 Tbsp almond butter
- handful of shredded coconut
- drizzle of agave (for a little bit of sweetness)
Voila! A healthy, nutritious almond joy for breakfast!
It doesn’t look like alot, but it was (almost) more than I could handle…so filling! Of course, there is an unpictured banana sprinkled with loads of cinnamon.
Now I’m off to the gym for a mid-morning cardio workout. I’m a really indecisive person, so I can’t decide what I feel like doing. More recent recipes, goodies, and workouts lateR!
