Gluten-Free Cocoa Wheats | Real Food RN

A lovely, hearty, and warm breakfast – and it’s chocolatey too! One of my favorite foods when I was a kid!

This bowl of grain-free cocoa wheats is cooked on the stovetop and takes less than 10 minutes to make. I love adding a little unsalted butter at the end to make it richer. I advise you to adjust the amount of sweetener to your liking, but I felt two tablespoons was adequate for me. Add all the butter you like, I add quite a bit!

The nutritional information is based on this recipe serving 1, but it’s a very generous serving so you may be able to stretch it between two people.
