Chocolate, the gift that keeps on giving. As long as you keep it in the house. 😅🍫🍨

A busy morning couldn’t keep me from my favorite way to enjoy chocolate, Cacao Porridge! This porridge has a special twist of quinoa and Coachs Oats cooked overnight in a crockpot. Woke up with our home smelling of chocolate. 😍🤤🍫

Ingredients: (Serves 6)

  • 1 and 1/2 cup Coach Oats
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 4 tablespoons Ripple Foods Half & Half
  • 4 tablespoons Cacao Powder
  • 5 cups water (or non-dairy milk)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Directions:

  • Spray a medium-large crockpot wit cooking spray (don’t forget this part!)
  • Add ingredients and mix until everything is combined.
  • Cooking on medium high for roughly 6 hours (or overnight).
  • In the morning you’ll have to mix the entire serving, I added a cup of water and 1 tablespoon vanilla whey powder in the morning so the consistency wouldn’t be as thick. Your preference though!
  • Top with yogurt, banana slices, chocolate peanut butter, and more chocolate if you’d like.
  • I store the leftovers in a big tupperware in the fridge for up to five days. Enjoy!
