I am always looking for quick, cheap, healthy breakfast ideas, and now that I'm slowly transitioning back into a gluten free diet (on the advice of my doctor) because of some really intense fatigue I had after starting with gluten again (not going on as strict of a diet as before just yet, but possibly will later), finding easy quick breakfasts has been even harder.
Fortunately, this chocolate pudding is pretty healthy (at least according to the traditional eating, chemical free, and healthy fat diet I try to follow) and can be made cheaply and within 5 minutes or less, making it my new favorite breakfast.
Chocolate Pudding Recipe
1/4 – 1/2 cup sucanat or sugar
1/4 cup corn starch or potato starch
1/2 cup cocoa
3 cup milk
3 medium eggs
1 tablespoon butter
1. Mix milk, sugar/sucanat, starch, cocoa, and milk. Whisk to remove any clumps.
2. Heat until thickened.
3. Mix egg in a cup. Add a spoonful of thickened pudding to the eggs, and mix quickly. Add the egg mixture back into the pudding and mix quickly.
4. Heat until just starting to bubble, then remove from flame.
5. Mix in butter.
6. Let cool a few minutes, then serve.
Do you like chocolate pudding? How do you usually make it, or do you buy it in snack cups? When/how do you serve it? For breakfast, snack, or desert?
