This hot bowl of oatmeal is also rich with chocolate, topped with grains and fruits, it is the perfect breakfast, or lunch, or snack. And the cacao and dark cocoa are a mood-booster so be prepared to have a great day. Finally, my favorite part is putting dark chocolate bar chunks and even a chocolate bliss ball and having them melt into the hot oatmeal! Dessert for breakfast! Only super healthy and energizing!
