Finally, chocolate for breakfast!

This breakfast is rich in magnesium, fibre, antioxidants, beneficial bacteria, and will help maintain blood sugar levels throughout the morning. This breakfast is great for kids, as it will give them plenty of energy to get through the morning, and tonnes of nutrients essential for daily health.

If you don’t have stevia – use your favourite low GI sweetener, i.e. rice malt syrup or coconut nectar.


2/3 cup oats
1 1/2 cups water
2 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla bean
3 tbsp walnuts, chopped
10 drops of stevia (or preferred sweetener)
2 tbsp coconut yoghurt
1/2 cup berries


In a small saucepan, place oats, water, cacao powder, cinnamon and vanilla bean and warm on the stove. Keep stirring as oats become hot, so they don’t catch on the bottom of the pot.

After 5 minutes, water should be absorbed and your oats should be creamy.

Remove from heat, and add in walnuts and stevia. Stir until well combined.

Pour into a bowl and garnish with coconut yoghurt and blueberries.

Serve while hot.
