Oatmeal bowls are one of my favorite breakfast menus. But what if I tell you, I have the perfect oatmeal bowl that can be both breakfast and dessert? Using the classic and well-beloved combination of chocolate and cherries, this rich and decadent chocolate & cherry oatmeal bowl is like a healthy version of chocolate pudding you can feel good about eating.
It’s also effortless to make and made super quick. The dark chocolate shavings add an element of crunch, and the oatmeal cooked with almond milk has a luscious creaminess you won’t get from water. You can count on the sour cherries to cut through the creaminess and nuttiness of chocolate and oats, plus turn it into a beautiful breakfast bowl worth bragging 🙂

This looks delicious! I love that pretty white bowl with the thick sides. Do you remember where you found it?

Thanks so much, Emily! I'm pretty sure I got the bowl at BB&B but I can't be too sure. The brand name seems to be missing on the bottom.
