Cacao & Peanut Butter Porridge

  • 1/2 cup organic or gluten-free oats

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp cacao powder
  • Sprinkle of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp chopped nuts and a piece of dark chocolate (75-85% cacao, optional) to decorate

How to make Cacao & Peanut Butter Porridge

1. Combine the oats and liquid in a saucepan and bring to the boil over high heat. Add cinnamon, cacao powder and a sprinkle of sea salt and stir.

2. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, covered for 10-12 minutes or until the oats are soft.

3. Spoon the oats into a bowl and top with peanut butter, banana, nuts and dark chocolate, if using.
