My new healthy breakfast that tastes like a treat!! I add a teaspoonful of hot chocolate powder and a shake each of cinnamon and nutmeg while the oats are cooking in a pan on the hob and it is scrummy! I’m not mad keen on sweet breakfasts – never understood the whole frosties or coco pops thing but the chocolate powder i use is not too sweet and just gives it a lovely flavour and creamy texture. I use this powder from M&S but you could use any you have hanging round the house.
I’ve also added blueberries and sultanas to the bowl so i can legitimately say i’ve had at least one of my five a day before the day has really started. For a protein boost (for all you New Year’s resolutioners) you can add a scoop of chocolate or vanilla protein powder or whip an egg white in while the oats are still cold. If you are trying to keep it heathy make sure you get whole oats not rolled or processed in any way. There’s no need to buy the microwaveable packets either because you can microwave any porridge oats.
Enjoy! Let me know if you try this or you have any other amazing oaty flavours to share. I also love almond and desiccated coconut.
