  • 1/2 to 1/3 cup (120 to 180 ml) brewed coffee
  • 1/2 to 1/3 cup (120 to 180) drinking coconut milk or almond milk, plus more for topping
  • 1 cup (80 g) gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup (40 g) unsweetened cocoa powder, plus extra for topping
  • 1/3 cup (60 g) dark chocolate chips, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup (40 g) unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) black chia seed or flaxseed, plus more for topping
  • Maple syrup, optional


  • Mix the brewed coffee with the coconut milk. Pour 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the coffee mixture over the oats in either a microwave-safe bowl or a saucepan on the stovetop. For the microwave, the oats and coffee should cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. On the stovetop over medium heat, the oats should cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Keep an extra 1/4 to 1/3 cup (60 to 80 ml) of the coffee mixture for topping. Once the oats are heated, add the cocoa and stir together.
  • Divide the oats into two bowls. Add in the chocolate chips, coconut, chia and maple syrup, if desired.
  • Pour the rest of the coffee mixture on top and sprinkle with the cocoa powder. Feel free to add more coconut milk or cream to make the oats more creamy.
  • Top with additional dark chocolate and chia seeds.
