Chocolate Porridge

Winter time is a time we crave warm nourishing food. What better way to satisfy those cravings than with a hot, fresh bowl of porridge. This recipe may seem "naughty", but with each chocolate mouthful you will be giving yourself all the amazing anti-oxidants, Omega 3s, and healthy fats to make you feel and look good.


½ cup rolled oats
½ cup coconut milk
½ cup water
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon raw cacao
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
1 tablespoon goji berries
4 walnuts, roughly chopped


Place oats, coconut milk and water into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the porridge does not stick.

Whilst the porridge is cooking, heat a small pan with the coconut oil, cacao, almond butter and maple syrup and stir until it is all dissolved.

Once the porridge is cooked, transfer into a bowl and pour over the chocolate mixture. Top with the shredded coconut, goji berries and walnuts.

Serves 1-2
