The ingredients used in this recipe are not only easy to find in stores, but also nutritiously dense. Oatmeal is a common low cholesterol heart healthy food that will give you plenty of energy in the day. Greek yogurt is known to have some probiotics, as well as a good amount of protein. Dark cocoa powder is a great way to enhance the chocolate flavor, but without the sugar so you can control the amount. Stevia is a natural sweetener alternative that is commonly believed to not raise blood sugar levels.
