Chocolate and Hazelnut Oatmeal

 

Who doesn’t love chocolate and hazelnuts? Especially together. Milk chocolate and hazelnut chocolate bar was my favorite, even though there never seemed to be enough hazelnuts in it. There was way too much empty chocolate space in each bar. I lucked out my last shopping trip and found a huge bag of toasted and peeled hazelnuts, which by the way is not always available at my favorite wholesale store. Anyhow, I was in the mood for something warm and chocolaty, but not too sweet for breakfast. This warm and filling chocolate hazelnut oatmeal was the perfect choice. And, I noticed that I did not grab a handful of chocolate chips at all yesterday when I had this oatmeal for breakfast. Could it be that my chocolate craving was satisfied for the day? Too soon to tell, will have to try another experiment. Anyway, hope you try this oatmeal and enjoy it as much as I have.
