Chocolate Oatmeal Porridge
An indulgent, but healthy, winter weekend breakfast for two. It’s delicious, but not too sweet and with the nutritious oats and anitoxidents in the chocolate, it actually makes for a healthy and sustaining breakfast.

Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 2 people
- ½ pt milk
- ½ pt water
- 50 g fine oatmeal
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
- 1 tsp honey
- 50 g 70% dark chocolate – broken into pieces.
- swirl of yogurt or cream (optional)
Bring the milk and water to boiling point in a medium sized saucepan. Slowly whisk in the oatmeal. Turn the heat down to the lowest setting & continue to whisk for a few minutes.
Add cinnamon and whisk until fully incorporated. Cover and leave to cook for 15 minutes, whisking every 4 minutes or so. This bit is important to stop the porridge sticking and to give it a nice creamy consistency.
Turn off the heat and add the honey and chocolate. Give it a final whisk and pour into two bowls. Add a swirl of yogurt or cream if desired.
