Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal

I LOVE Chocolate!  So, when I can add it to my breakfast, that is a huge bonus.  Eating a balanced breakfast is key to starting your day off right to balance your blood sugar and your hormones.
 
This chocolate cherry oatmeal will fill you up with the sweet taste of chocolate and cherries you will think you are having dessert.
 
Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal
 
1 cup steel cut oats
2 cups water
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
4 egg whites
2 tbsp raw cacao or cocoa powder
 
 
Toppings:  Frozen cherries, unsweetened shredded coconut, hemp seeds, chia seeds, raw cacao nibs
 
Directions:
 
Cook the steel cut oats in the water and almond milk.  When cooked (about 20 minutes)  stir in the egg whites and cook another few minutes with the lid on, on low heat.  Mix in the cacao, and portion into individual containers.  Top with hemp seeds, chia seeds, raw cacao nibs or coconut.  
 
These individual servings can then be re-warmed the next day.
 
Top the above with frozen cherries on the hot oatmeal, when ready to serve.
