Fancy making your morning porridge taste different?

Nothing better than a nice and warm breakfast on a cold Winters morning.

Blackberry And Cacao Porridge: Warm And Tasty

Especially when you have to get up early to walk the dog. On really cold mornings, I really don’t want to go out in the cold.

I feel a lot better if I have had a warm breakfast first.

Sometimes though, porridge along gets a little boring.

So why not jazz it up a little and add different flavours and fruits to them?

How about trying this Blackberry and Chocolate Porridge?

How tasty and yummy does this recipe look!!

How To Make Blackberry And Cacao Porridge:

For The Porridge:

80g Quaker Oats

600ml milk of your choice

a pinch of sea salt

1 teaspoon of raw cacao (more if using regular cocoa)

a pinch of cinnamon

Blackberry And Cacao Porridge

The Blackberries:

150g blackberries (can use frozen)

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

a squeeze of lemon

Blackberry And Cacao Porridge

To Top:

fresh blackberries halved

1/4 finely chopped apple (in sticks)

1 tablespoon of almond butter

1 teaspoon chopped almonds


1.) First, make the blackberry topping; simmer the blackberries with the maple syrup until sticky and thickened, this will take about 10 minutes, longer if you are using frozen blackberries.

2.) Place all the porridge ingredients into a pan and cook for 5-8 minutes until the Quaker Oats come together.

3.) Top the porridge with the blackberries, apple, almond butter and chopped almonds.
