Chocolate Almond Butter Oatmeal

September 20, 2017

bowl (I have these in pink and white and love them!) | faux bamboo spoon | mug (old, but this one is similar and just as cute)

I'm not normally an oatmeal fan, but lately I can't get enough of it!  It's not even cold here in Hawaii but I've been eating it almost every morning.  Oatmeal is a great galactagogue (food that aids in breast milk supply) so I'm probably subconsciously craving it because I have a newborn and am feeding her around the clock.  Here is the simple recipe (more of a guideline because I don't measure) that I've been eating every day.  It's super yummy and is a great way to start the day.

Chocolate Almond Butter Oatmeal


-oatmeal (I'm obsessed with Coach's Oats, which is sold at Costco and Amazon.  It has a much better texture than normal oatmeal)
-ground flax seed
-almond butter
-chocolate chips
-fresh strawberries


1.  Pour oatmeal into bowl and add water.  I microwave mine for 90 seconds on high.
2.  Add about 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed to the oatmeal.
3.  Add about a tablespoon of almond butter to the oatmeal.  Stir in.
4.  Top with sliced fresh strawberries.  I normally use 4 or 5.
5.  Sprinkle some chocolate chips into the oatmeal.  Stir to melt.
