Around autumn my cravings for hot chocolates and comforting porridges seem to explode. I mean, I am a huge fan of warm oats in general but a good hot chocolate will always do it too.
Then I thought why not having both at the same time and the result pleased me big time. Marrons give it a slightly nutty taste and them being butter roasted is probably the closest heaven can get in your mouth.
I added blueberry compote and a few more blueberries on top, to give it a juicy, fruity touch. The chocolate and marrons can get very heavy and I do recommend putting a hint of fruity taste to it.
Hot Chocolate Oats with Butter Roasted Marrons
- 250ml cashew milk
3 tbsp cocoa powder
5-6 pre cooked marrons
1 tbsp vegan butter
3 tbsp maple syrup
optional blueberry compote + cashew butter
- Step 1 In a small sauce pan bring cashew milk to a heat, then add cocoa powder and 2 tbsp maple syrup.
- Step 2
Soon as the chocolate milk is very hot, take off the stove and add oats. Stir well through and let sit for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile cut marrons into small pieces, add vegan butter to a small skillet or sauce pan and soon as it is melted, add the marrons to it. Keep stirring for 2 minutes and add one tsp maple syrup.
- Step 4
Pour porridge in a bowl and top with marrons, cashew butter and blueberries.
