Fortified with almond butter and spiked with instant espresso, this bowl of mocha-inspired oatmeal only tastes sinfully decadent. This recipe utilizes whole grains, uses minimal sugar, and has crunchy toasted almonds for a satisfying and energizing breakfast. Almond milk gives this oatmeal a rich, creamy texture, but substituting water or a combination of almond milk and water will lighten the dish without sacrificing its chocolatey intensity. The deep chocolate flavor gets its boost from instant espresso powder, a pantry favorite often used to lend complexity to baked goods. To amp up flavor without the caffeine, seek out a decaffeinated variety.
