Nutella Porridge AKA Heaven

Happy Friday! 

I've been a little quiet on here recently as I've moved to Paris for 6 months! Now that I'm all settled, I'm going to make it up to you by sharing the recipe for this Nutella Porridge - make it this weekend and thank me later!

The combination of FOUR different sources of chocolate adds so much depth to this breakfast, plus the pinch of sea salt really brings out the various chocolate flavours and will make your tastebuds dance! Scroll down to get your hands on this magical recipe.


























Ingredients:
1/2 cup oats, soaked in 1 cup hot water for at least 20 mins.
1 tbsp cacao powder (I use Creative Nature Superfoods - use my code "CPB10" for discount)
1/2 tbsp carob powder
1 tbsp cacao nibs
1-2 squares dark chocolate grated/very finely chopped
1 cup hazelnut milk
2/3 banana, mashed (use rest for topping)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp date syrup
Small pinch of sea salt

Method:
1. Mix all ingredients except the cacao powder in a pan and bring to the boil.
2. Reduce to gentle simmer for 2 mins. 
3. Remove from the heat and stir in the cacao (this preserves it's antioxidants and minerals so they are not overheated).
4. Transfer to a bowl, cover with toppings and dig in!

I'd love to know what you think of this recipe. Please tag me on Instagram if you make it @cerealandpeanutbutter #cerealandpeanutbutter .
