Easiest ever healthy chocolate porridge


For a warming, healthy breakfast try our creamy chocolate porridge. Top with chopped banana and sprinkle with cocoa powder for an Instagrammable breakfast bowl.

How to make healthy chocolate porridge:

  • In a bowl mix 120g porridge oats, 4 tsp cocoa and 1 tsp vanilla extract with 1 litre of water. Leave in the fridge to soak overnight.
  • The next day stir through 2 chopped bananas, tip into a saucepan and cook on a medium heat for 5 mins.
  • Divide between 4 serving bowls, or you could serve 2 people over 2 days. Top each bowl of porridge with a spoonful of natural yogurt, ½ sliced banana and some cocoa powder.
