Comforting Cocoa Porridge:
- 40g oats
- 20g cocoa powder
- 1 banana, thinly sliced (mine was about 75g after baby stole some)
- 90g frozen blueberries (to feel like I was at least trying to nourish my body!!)
- 220ml milk
- some form of sweetener, to taste (I stirred in 25g maple syrup after cooking - my body always craves sweet things when I'm feeling lousy)
- Topped with 30g crunchy peanut butter
This was perfect, just what I needed. I was a bit worried it would be overly sweet (I'd accidentally tipped in more maple syrup than intended!!), but it was just right. The peanut butter went all melty, and I loved the bites of blueberry in each mouthful, providing a juicy contrast to the rich cocoa. Yum!
Now I've just got to work out how to get through the rest of the day with 2 irritable children, on only 5 hours sleep. Coffee may be in my very near future!!
