If you are a chocolate lover, this easy oatmeal recipe is for you. It's rich and chocolatey, but not overwhelmingly sweet. It tastes like an indulgent breakfast treat.
It's perfect with some fresh berries, a drizzle of nut butter or a tiny sprinkle of sea salt, which can help to bring out the chocolate flavour just a little but more.
