Wake up with a gorgeous bowl of swirling goodness with these oats. I love combining the melty goodness of dark chocolate with the crunchiness of cacao nibs. These oats are boosted wit some hidden strawberries and all the healthy benefits of cacao. Cacao is full of antioxidants, iron, magnesium, and calcium. To boot, it's low in calories and is low fat. I use it all the time in oatmeal, pancakes, and even my coffee to sneak in these benefits.
