Hey hey….well you all know my love for grains ……well, this triple grain idea actually happened unexpectedly. Me being me, and my latest obsession for breakfast (and grains) sort of happened like this. Leftover cooked quinoa, a bit of millet and some buckwheat, and I kind of wondered what on earth I was going to do with the ‘bits’. So, I threw them all together, added some instant coffee, tasted it, yum. And, from there it all evolved. Thoughts of chocolate, and then coconut entered my brain, and soon more chocolate. I mean, come on, who doesn’t like a bit of a dark chocolate kick? Then, the guilt fled in, so I added some chia seeds. Hahahahahaha
So, this breakfast can be prepared overnight, and eaten the next day without any issues. Warming it up is just the best, as those chocolate chunks just start to melt, OMW !!! and then here and there you get a bit of a chunk of chocolate. Seriously, this is a great way to start the morning or in fact, I could eat this anytime of the day…obvs 🙂
