I’m asked quite often what my favorite porridge or oatmeal is. What’s so great about this breakfast food is that you can experiment with virtually endless variations. With that in mind, I’ve come up with a new version, perfect for this this time of year: chocolate-banana porridge. Yum! I like this porridge best on cold winter mornings with a cup of coffee. I grab my laptop and let the day’s inspiration flow. Best moment of the day!
2 days in the fridge
90 g (1 cup) (sprouted) whole oats
450 ml (1 ¾ cups) oat milk or water
1 medium banana
2 pinches salt
½ tsp vanilla, unsweetened
½ tsp cinnamon
2 heaping tsp cacao powder
2 tsp maple syrup (optional)
nut butter (optional)
Slice the banana into pieces. Add the oats, water or oat milk, banana and a pinch of salt to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Then add the cinnamon, vanilla, cacao and the maple syrup if you are using it. Simmer for another minute or two, transfer to two bowls and it’s ready to serve! Especially delicious with a spoonful of nut butter stirred in.
