By now you all know my love and adiction for porridge. And because I want to pass this devotion to all of you, today I bring you a super quick porridge so you don’t have excuse to avoid a nutritious breakfast in the morning.
This porridge breakfast recipe is great for busy mornings. For those days we couldn’t avoid to press the snooze bottom of our alarms. For those we rather prefer to get coddle in bed than spending time preparing breakfast. But here you have the solution, it will only take you few minutes to make and you will still enjoy its beautifully healthy and energising properties.
The secret is just to soak the oats with boiling water while you get ready. Then warm it up over the stove or in the microwave a couple of minutes. And finally the fun part, add your favourite toppings or whatever you have on hand. Or even if you want a speedier way to make porridge you could put everything in a bowl and thow it into the microwave, a couple of minutes to high temperature and voilà a delicious and creamy porridge is done!
Lately I’m enjoying a lot a big bowl of chocolate porridge, yes, just add a teaspoon of pure raw cocoa powder to your milk and oats and you will get an intense chocolaty breakfast, perfect for chocolate lovers.
If you’ve been cautious or are still exceptical of porridge, I challenge you to give this one a try! Let your granola aside, the chocolate flavor makes this porridge irresistible, especially with a little melted dark chocolate on top.
This is the easiest and best way to have healthy and nutritious mornings, don’t you thing? If you give this recipe a try, let me know!! I would love to see what you come up!! Please, leave a comment below or tag #healthyforkful on Instagram!
