This is possibly one of the best breakfasts I have ever made. And quite possibly the best thing ever. I woke up with a major sweet-tooth this morning, really craving something chocolatey- and sometimes bog-standard porridge just doesn’t cut it! Rather than reach for a piece of chocolate cake (admittedly, yes I have done that for breakfast before), what better thing to do than to create a creamy, rich, chocolatey, oaty heaven, that is still relatively healthy!
I cooked the oats in coconut milk and then stirred in a teaspoon of cocoa powder whilst hot. Then topped with chopped banana and sprinkled with flaked almonds and chia seeds. I also added a small drizzle of agave nectar, to take away the sharpness of the cocoa. I popped the porridge in the microwave for an extra 30 seconds which cooks the banana slightly, and combined with the agave nectar it creates that amazing melted, caramelly, creaminess that you get when you barbecue bananas.
It tastes like pure luxury! Rich and silky and still made with good, natural ingredients. I don’t think my photo does it justice! I think I would honestly have this for pudding as well. Yum.
