Chocolate, orange, nuts & banana, sweet oat porridge – Sonal shout out!

Chocolate, orange, nuts & banana, sweet oat porridge


I originally got this recipe from Sonal who nearly all of you will know by now, she is a gem!  Anyway you can find her porridge post here:- Chocolate & Oats Porridge

Visual Evidence

I jizzed this recipe up by including orange.  But it would have been just as good without.  I have to say I absolutely adored this dish, I can eat for breakfast as a treat fit for a Queen, or Princess of course, or for a pudding, either way the kids gobbled it down and it is on the ‘more’ list.  So a big thank you to Sonal…..

    Welcome to FIesta Friday Justine… and what a beautiful contribution to our table! I should spruce up my everyday oatmeal concoction with this delicious sounding breakfast. Love the addition of hazelnuts too. Cocoa is definitely going in my oatmeal bowl tomorrow. Thanks for bringing these, beautiful pictures too!

    This looks awesome! Can I substitute milk with unsweetened almond milk?
