Choco-Coconut ‘Bounty’ Oatmeal

For the second guest post, I have for you a beautiful porridge bowl by Monica Zolczer at Mindfully Moni. It may still be summer... but porridge is a year round favourite! Some great flavour combos, and not forgetting the cute banana cutouts. Monica used the Super Seedy Toppers but most of the flavours would make great Topping... how about Choc-Cocout for a double chocolate bowlful :-)

Recipe: Choco-Coconut ‘Bounty’ Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 40g rolled oats
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 2-3tbsp cacao powder
  • 1tbsp lucuma powder
  • 1tbsp date syrup
  • 1tbsp coconut shreds
  • 150ml coconut water

Toppings:

  • 1tbsp Super Seedy Toppers
  • 1tbsp coconut shreds
  • 1tbsp quinoa pops

Method:

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the choco-coconut oatmeal in a pan until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps.
  2. Cook the oatmeal on a medium-low heat until the milk no longer separates from the oats, when stirring with a wooden spoon, and the desired consistency is reached. (Note: Some people like to add in the mashed banana after cooking but I do this before cooking; it’s completely up to you!)
  3. Carefully remove the oats from the hob and allow to cool for a few minutes whilst you prepare the toppings/ wash the fruit.
  4. Pour the oatmeal into a breakfast bowl and smooth out the top, using the back of a spoon.
  5. Sprinkle with your desired toppings & ENJOY!
