Chocolate Espresso Oats (GF, V)


Okay, so, being a mom of 3, it’s no secret that caffeine is an essential part of my day. I’m talking non-negotiable. However, chocolate is also pretty high up on my priority list, too.

Veggies, unfortunately, don’t always get prioritized as they should. Hey, I’m human, too! So, in an effort to sneak more veggies into my diet without sacrificing the foods I love, I created these Chocolate Espresso Oats.

Chocolate Espresso Oats

Made with riced cauliflower (Trust me. Freeze it, I swear it tastes better!), gluten-free oats, Nuzest real coffee clean lean protein (code: thekellykathleen if ya want a discount!), espresso grounds, and a Goes Hawaiian Jojo’s Chocolate Bites, this recipe is full of nutrients and fiber but tastes like dessert. I guess it’s true, vegetables really do taste good!

To make this oatmeal, just mix your cauliflower (you froze it, right?), oats, and milk. Microwave the mixture. Wait, though! Be careful. Overflowing oatmeal is the WORST. Okay, then, stir in your protein powder and add your toppings – the more chocolate, the better in my opinion!

Dying to tell everyone you made this recipe and loved it?? Don’t forget to share a picture and tag @thekellykathleen so that I can profess my love to you and re-share it for all to see!
