Raw German Chocolate Chia Porridge

German Chocolate Chia Porridge

I always have some sort of porridge for breakfast during the week, whether it be oatmeal or chia porridge.  I am pretty plain with it most of the time, with the chia porridge simply using coconut water and topping it off with bananas and ground flax seed.  But sometimes I like to give it a little pizazz and make something that will make me excited for breakfast.  Like chia seed porridge with a flavor!  Like German chocolate!  Which is what I decided to make last week.  Something a little decadent and something that would be more exciting than my usual bland breakfast.  The best part is it can be made the night before so no rushing in the morning to prepare it!

I used a coconut milk base made chocolaty with raw cacao and sweetened with date paste for a little bit of a caramel flavor.  Then I topped it off with the things I would use in German chocolate cake, walnuts and coconut like in the frosting, plus more cacao nibs for some intense chocolate crunch action.  I am a big texture person, so it was important for me to have crunch topping off my soft chia porridge for me to really enjoy this as much as I possibly could.  It was simply heavenly.  I will leave it at that!
