Chocolate and Coconut Bounty Porridge Recipe

For the last few months I've been pounding the oats for breakfast, overnight oats, oats in smoothies, porridge oats with various flavours. I always need a breakfast that can fill me up and keep me satisfied until lunch time rolls around and so far, oats do the trick.

 

This little recipe was based off one of my favourite chocolate bars, yes I am one of the very few people in the world that enjoy a delicious Bounty. This porridge recipe combines the richness of cacao powder and the unique and light flavour of coconut. It actually tastes like a dark chocolate Bounty, depending on how much honey you throw in there.

This only requires a handful of ingredients, most of which you may already have in your baking cupboards. Simply throw it all in a saucepan, or even in a microwave to make things a little speedier!

3) If you’re using the microwave, heat on full power for around 2 minutes, keep an eye on it, we all know that porridge can get carried away!

4) If you’re heating it up in a saucepan, keep stirring until the mixture becomes thick and the porridge oats expand.
