Chocolate porridge



Chocolate porridge

Sweeten this chocolate porridge with dates for a filling breakfast to set you up for the day. Flavoured with magnesium-rich cacao, it’s full of nutrients


  • Prep:
  • Cook:



  • 125g porridge oats
  • 4 dates, stoned
  • 500-600ml milk, any will work
  • 1 tbsp cacao or good quality cocoa powder
  • yogurt and maple syrup, to serve (optional)



  • STEP 1

    Blend half the oats and the dates in a food processor until you have a thick paste, adding a splash of milk to help the blades go round if necessary. Scrape the mixture into a saucepan and add the rest of the oats, 500ml milk, the cacao and a pinch of salt. Stir well and set over a low-medium heat.

  • STEP 2

    Stir the porridge every now and then for the next 5-10 mins, until it’s thick and creamy – add a splash more milk if you prefer a looser consistency. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup, if you like.
