Porridge is perfect for winter mornings. It’s lovely to have something warm and nourishing, and adding a bit of fruit gives flavour and extra nutrients.
For this recipe I have used cacao powder, which gives a chocolaty flavour without the sugar.
The boys loved this dish – they ate it for dessert one night and then made another for breakfast the next morning!
- oats (I use wholegrain)
- cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
- blueberries or raisins (I used frozen blueberries)
- raisin (or date)
- strawberry (or piece of red apple)
Step 1 Put some porridge or soaked oats in a bowl.
Step 2 Add banana ears.
Step 3 And two big, blueberry eyes.
Step 4 Sprinkle cacao (or cocoa) to make a patch.
Step 5 Use another blueberry sliced into a triangle for the nose.
Step 6 Then slice a large raisin to form the mouth.
Step 7 Add a strawberry mouth.
