And I’m back with more oatmeal (porridge) recipe! This time my all time favorite combination in the form of oatmeal – Hazelnut and chocolate!
Who doesn’t love the combination of hazelnut and chocolate? I no know one… do you? For the ones who haven’t tried it yet, think Nutella! yes 🙂 I love the nutty chocolatey taste of this oatmeal and it’s vegan, gluten-free, made from scratch in just 15 mins.
I always loved hazelnut and chocolate and both of them together in a spread, but somehow I didn’t think of putting them together in my morning oatmeal recipe. For me Apple-Cinnamon and Banana Chocolate were great oatmeal options! Until I saw it in the market! One of the pre-made porridge brands had a hazelnut and chocolate flavor and I couldn’t get the image of it out from my head till I made it myself! 🙂
I hope you really enjoy this simple recipe. It would make my day, if you can review it and/or leave your feedback in the comments below!
Hazelnut and Chocolate Oatmeal (porridge)
Ingredients (1cup = 240ml; 1tbsp = 15ml; 1tsp = 5ml)
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 2 cups hazelnut milk (you can also cook in water)
- 1 tbsp ground roasted hazelnut (made with 8 hazelnuts)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp dark cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp cacao nibs (or chopped chocolate)
- 3-4 roasted hazelnut chopped
- In a thick bottom pot, add oats and hazelnut milk. Bring to a boil on medium heat.
- Add ground hazelnut powder, vanilla extract, and cocoa powder to the pot. Mix well and let it simmer till the oats are cooked through. Stir frequently in between to allow even cooking.
- Mix in the maple syrup and then remove in a serving bowl.
- Sprinkle some chopped hazelnuts and cacao nibs on top and enjoy warm!
- While you can cook the oats in water, cooking them in hazelnut milk really makes them super creamy and delicious.
- The chopped hazelnut and cacao nibs add a crunchy bit to the smooth oatmeal and taste very nice. If you don’t have cacao nibs, add some chopped chocolate!
