Raw Steelcut Oats Porridge – Chocolate and peanut butter…

| Breakfast

IMG_4158IMG_4161IMG_4165I love oats in general and especially steelcut oats as it keeps me fuller for longer with its wonderfully low GI.  I noticed that the rawtarian has a wonderful recipe for raw steelcut oats porridge on her blog, so I tried it.  I loved it and decided to play a bit with the concept and dessertify it a little;)  You know me and my sweet tooth…

Of course it is all healthy though – full of fibre, healthy fats, hormone balancing maca and my favourite superfood in the whole wide world – raw cacao!

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 1/3 cup steelcut oats (I prefer not to soak them)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 teaspoons raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 2 teaspoons sweetener of choice (I used erythritol/stevia mixture)
  • 2-3 teaspoons peanut butter
  • small pinch of salt
  • 2 medjool dates , pitted

Instructions

Add water and then oats to your blender and start blending.  After a minute or two, add all other ingredients and continue blending until smooth.  Taste and adjust to your preference.

If you want to soak the oats, simply put the 1/3 cup oats and 1/2 cup water into the blender the night before.  The next morning, switch on your blender and gather the other ingredients.  Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth.  This yields a smoother porridge with less texture.  Personally, I prefer the thicker, richer texture you get when you do not pre-soak the oats.  Try both and do according to your preference.

This portion may look small but believe me – it is RICH and filling.  It kept me perfectly satisfied from 9am-2pm!  And that says a lot as I usually eat every 3 hours:)
