As the mornings get colder and darker, porridge is such a great warming breakfast option.
Try this malty maca, cinnamon and chia seed porridge with seeds, berries, almonds and cacao nibs for some oats with a difference!
Maca is a pervuvian ‘superfood’, full of vitamins and minerals to improve your energy, mood and overall health.
Chai seeds will expand when added to liquid, providing a really filling and sustaining carbohydrate source.
Packed with antioxidants, cacao nibs might not be the sweetest but are definitely the healthiest way to eat chocolate!
INGREDIENTS (serves 1):
40g porridge oats
100ml almond milk
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp maca powder

1 tbsp dried fruit/berries of your choice

1 tsp raw cacao nibs
