This creamy and decadent Chocolate Orange Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast bowl for any chocolate lover. It tastes like a comforting bowl of warm chocolate with a burst of orange flavor. Enjoy it hot off the stove for an easy breakfast that comes together in 15 minutes!



Always opt for organic ingredients.

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 orange
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk

Optional Toppings

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Orange slices
  • Creamy peanut butter


  • Blend: In a high-speed blender, combine the non-dairy milk, ripe banana, 1/2 of the orange, cacao powder, and ground flax seeds. Blend on high until smooth.
  • Combine: Next, transfer the chocolate orange milk to a small saucepan and add the rolled oats.
  • Cook: Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for about 5-7 minutes stirring frequently until most of the liquid is gone and the texture is very thick.
  • Serve: Pour into a bowl, top with dark chocolate, additional orange slices, and creamy peanut butter, if desired.
  • Enjoy!


  • For the best texture, I suggest using rolled oats, but you can use quick oats, or if you have more time, you can also use steel cut oats.
  • If you prefer your oatmeal to be thicker, you can cook your oats on the stovetop for a couple more minutes. On the other hand, if you prefer it thinner, cook your oats for a slightly less time.
  • Be sure your banana is ripe. The more ripe your banana is, the sweeter your oatmeal will be.
  • Use a high-speed blender to ensure that you achieve chocolate orange milk, with few to none clumps remaining.
  • Garnish with your favorite toppings.
