Hot Chocolate Porridge


So this chocolate porridge sounds like a treat but it’s actually pretty healthy. I use Lucy Bee cacao powder for the chocolate hit. Cocoa, or cacao powder, are great store cupboard standbys for chocolatey baking: chocolate contains caffeine so this is a great alternative.


Makes 1 adult, or 2 small portions
I would serve this 1 year +

  • 40g normal oats

  • 220-250ml milk (dairy, or non dairy)

  • 1 ripe banana, peel and mash

  • 2 teaspoons cacao powder

  • pinch of ground cinnamon

Cook your oats with the milk, once it starts to bubble you can add the other ingredients. Add mashed banana, cinnamon and cacao powder. Keep stirring until completely cooked. I serve with berries for a bit of sharp sweetness, bear faces optional...
