My husband and I eat oatmeal everyday for breakfast. One of the best ways to lower cholesterol that I know of is our FAVORITE kind of oatmeal. CHOCOLATE!!! For you chocolate lovers out there can you think of a better way to start your day? Yummmm! There is not much else I can say about this yummy breakfast except……….
HERE IS THE RECIPE:
2 cups water
1 cup old fashioned or steel cut oats (no quick oats- too processed)
2 TB cacao powder (natural chocolate powder (link on amazon to follow)
1 tsp vanilla
2 TB agave nectar for sweetening (to taste) – you may want a little more : )
dash of salt optional
Start water to boiling, add oats, vanilla, cacao powder and cook until done. [Stir in agave nectar after you take it off the heat.]
Meanwhile slice 1/2 banana in bottom of 2 bowls.
When oatmeal is done pour over banana in bowls.
