ingredients

  • 2 cup water
  • 214 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup gluten-free steel cut oats
  • 2 tbsp linseeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 14 tsp sea salt

instructions

Into a large pot combine water, milk, oats, chia seeds and salt. To make Mexican hot chocolate oats, add dark cocoa. cinnamon, pinch of cayenne, and vanilla. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring with a whisk to remove any chia clumps. Reduced heat to a low simmer and partially cover the pot with a lid.

Cook for 20-30 minutes until oats are tender (5 to 10 minutes for rolled oats) stirring often so that the bottom does’t burn. When oats are tender, sweeten to taste and add a splash of milk if too thick for your liking.
