Peanut chocolate porridge with figs, coconut, and blueberries

IMG_0701

This is my favourite breakfast option. It’s perfect on any kind of day. It’s warm; wonderful to cuddle up with in winter, but fresh and fruity enough for an Australian summer day.

Recipe

Oatmeal

1/2 cup of oats
1/4 cup of water
roughly 1/4 cup of milk (coconut, almond, fresh organic cows milk)
1 tablespoon of honey

If you can. Pre soak the oats in water the night before. This will make it easier to digest and cook even faster. In the morning put ingredients in a small saucepan on medium heat. Stirring pretty consistently. Add more milk as desired. Cook for about 10 minutes.

Peanut Chocolate Sauce

2 tablespoons of organic 100% peanuts peanut butter (make sure they don’t add anything!)
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 heaped tablespoons of cacao powder
2 tablespoon of honey or rice malt syrup
splash of vanilla
splash of any milk

Place ingredients in a small saucepan. Again stirring quite consistently. You can cook the oatmeal and chocolate sauce at the same time. Add more milk if it’s too thick. Once all ingredients are melted in together, it’s ready.

Topping suggestions

figs
banana
any sort of berry (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)
nuts (almonds, more peanuts, hazelnuts)
shredded coconut
Greek yoghurt, coconut yoghurt, or more milk

Pour however much chocolate sauce you want on your oatmeal (you will probably have a bit leftover for tomorrows toast, or tomorrows oatmeal). Then drown it in your topping of choice, changing it up each time.

Chocolate, Macca, Vanilla Protein Narnie Ice cream

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

This is great. I have seen cute pics of nicecream everywhere tempting me to try this. I added pea protein powder to balance the fructose levels in the bananas and make it a more stable breakfast. It’s fluffy and creamy. It’s vegan. Just substitute the greek yoghurt on top with coconut yoghurt or go without and then it’s totally vegan and delicious.

Recipe

Frozen bananas
Splash of almond milk
Scoop of vanilla protein powder
Teaspoon of cacao powder
Teaspoon of macca powder

Toppings

Pomegranate
Blueberries
Buckinis (Buckwheat already soaked, breaking down the phytates, so your body can more easily absorb the seed. It’s then dried so that it’s crunchy and delicious. I buy the lovingearth brand)
Greek yoghurt

Just blend all ingredients and add desired amount of toppings.
