Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast?! This rich chocolate oatmeal is completely healthy and packed with nutrients. It tastes like a decadent treat, but is a wholesome breakfast. Raw cacao powder is loaded with antioxidants and contains natural chemicals called flavonoids, which can lower your risk of several diseases – so go ahead and enjoy that cacao! Just make sure it is in the raw, organic form with no added sugar. My favorite cacao powder is Navitas Naturals Organic Cacao Powder and Philosophie Cacao Magic, which is a superfood protein powder made of cacao and other superfoods.
