This is a staple breakfast in our house hold, it covers all the basics – good carbs, healthy fats, protein and is high in fibre, vitamins and minerals.
Also it’s super quick to cook and you’ll feel full of energy until midday.
1 cup of gluten free rolled oats
1 cup of water
1 cup of no added sugar, non-dairy milk, coconut, almond, hemp, rice (which ever you prefer)
1 large kale leaf – stalked removed and leaf finely sliced
1 tablespoon of chia seeds (can be omitted)
2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon of coconut oil
Chopped berries of choice
Homemade raw granola (blend in a blender; seeds, nuts and dried coconut)
In a saucepan add the oats, milk, water, chia seeds and shredded kale and bring to boil.
Once at boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes – keep an eye on the porridge, you do not want it to dry up before adding the cacao powder.
Remove from heat, add the cacao powder and coconut oil and stir until well combined – it should look lovely and chocolatey.
Divide and pour into two bowls and add your toppings.
Sit down and enjoy with a cup of black coffee.
