Chocolate Protein Porridge

Chocolate Protein Porridge to break your fast

Chocolate for breakfast that is nutritionist approved? What’s not to love?! Full of fibre, protein and antioxidant rich cacao, this protein porridge is delicious and feels indulgent, bringing a little bit of comfort and luxury to your mornings. 

Oats by themselves are quite low in protein, so porridge for breakfast isn’t always the best start to the day, leaving you feeling hungry shortly afterwards. This chocolate protein porridge is a bit of a twist on one of our absolute member favourite meals. Our nutritionist, Gabi, has tweaked it a little to increase the protein content, making it the perfect start to the day, whether you’re fasting or not!

  1. Place the oats, cacao, chia seeds and milk in a small pan with 100ml water (per serve) and bring to a simmer. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently until you have a smooth creamy porridge.
