Written By Gracie 

If you have a sweet tooth then this is for you… warm chocolatey porridge. This recipe is great for breakfast because even though it tastes naughty and indulgent it is actually SO good for you and packed full of nutrients that will keep you going throughout the day. For those that can’t handle sweet things for breakfast then this porridge also works really well as an afternoon sweet treat or pudding in the evening.

It’s full of fibre, vitamins, antioxidants… the list of health benefits is endless! It’s also gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and guilt-free!
