I came across an article the other day that made my chocolate-loving heart feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

It basically said that eating chocolate for breakfast is awesome isn’t a horrible idea, stating that it can actually help prevent junk food binges later in the day since you’re satisfying your sweet tooth straightaway instead of spending the whole day thinking about it and letting the cravings build up to the point where you want to eat all the sweets in sight.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 1/4 cup (300 ml) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp (16 g) nut butter OR dairy-free chocolate chips*
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup**
  • 1/2 cup (40 g) rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp (10 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
DIRECTION
  1. The night before, add all ingredients (except chocolate chips, if using) to the bowl of your blender and give it a stir to ensure that everything is well combined. Cover and place in fridge for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. This step isn't absolutely necessary, but allowing the oats to soak for a few hours will make them easier to blend and give you a smoother, creamier smoothie.
  2. When ready to eat, blend on high until oats are fully broken down and a smooth and creamy consistency is reached.
