Dark Chocolate and Strawberry Porridge

Finding the time to make breakfast on a workday can be a pretty hard task, and we often resort to using coffee as our morning pick-me-up. Trust me, I know the feeling. I start work at 8:30am so I am always trying to come up with the quickest meals i can that will fill me up until lunchtime. Porridge is full of fibre and only takes a few minutes to prepare. It also fills you up very easily so there’s no need for a mid morning snack. πŸ™‚

What You’ll Need:


1 cup Porridge OatsΒ 

approximately 20-30g dark chocolate (just a rough measurement)

4 Large Strawberries

Runny HoneyΒ 

Milk (or non dairy substitute)

1. Into a microwavable bowl, add in your oats, 2 cubed strawberries and about 2 thirds of your chocolate.

2. Pour in enough milk to cover the surface of your oats, plus another centimetre (similar to when you cook rice)

3. Stir the mixture and pop it in the microwave for 3 minutes. If you haven’t got access to a microwave, you can also use half milk and top it up with half boiling water from the kettle.

4. Stir your porridge really well, add in any extra milk if you need it. Top with the remaining strawberries and chocolate, and drizzle with honey. ENJOY!

I would love to know what you use as your go-to morning breakfast! Let me know in the comments πŸ™‚
