"Decadent" Chocolate Raspberry Oat Bran


I had a request in the comments section for the recipe for my Chocolate Raspberry Oat Bran so I figured I'd just make a new post about it instead of responding in the comments.

As I mentioned before, I love oat bran because it's smoother than rolled oats, but you could easily do this with rolled oats as well. The cooking time would just vary a bit.

I really don't know if this even qualifies as a "recipe" but here it is nonetheless!

"Decadent" Chocolate Raspberry Oat Bran
source: me

1/4 cup oat bran
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
1/2 a banana, thinly sliced
1/3 cup frozen or fresh raspberries

1 tablespoon Nutella or other chocolate nut butter

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small pot and turn heat to high. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-high. Stir vigorously every minute or so until it thickens to the consistency that you want (usually mine takes about 5 minutes). The raspberries and the banana will completely disintegrate into the mixture so that there won't be any chunks (though if you want chunks you could just add the raspberries or banana later).

Once the oat bran is cooked, serve and top with a dollop of Nutella.

Enjoy!

  2. Considering such risks, why would you opt to settle for them when you could avail
    yourself of hypnosis for a fast weight loss to resolve all your issues with weight.

    It's healthy, good for the body and free of charge. After your routine, stretch again for another 5 minutes to cool down. Sometimes the need to lose weight fast doesn't translate into keeping the pounds off.
