Dreamy Chocolate Coconut Oat Bran

Coconut – you either love it or you hate it.

Me? I love obsess over it. I couldn’t tell you why – I just think it has an amazing, rich flavor. I know I have exclaimed my love for this wonderful tropical fruit, but lately I’ve been enjoying some sort of coconut flavoring at every meal. The only coconut trend I can’t jump on is coconut water. While it might have amazing hydration properties, the taste really deters me.

This caffeinated runner has been sick for the past two days. Yesterday hit me like a ton of bricks – fever, body aches, migraine, fatigue, nausea and coughing. Essentially, every flu symptom known to man. All I wanted was a comforting bowl of oats with my go to flavor – coconut. While I am feeling 97% better today (no fever! yay!), I know the medications and not my breakfast, played a large role in that. I’m still thinking it was the coconut ;)
