ready for an overindulgent chocolate & coconut porridge with caramelised bananas to start (or end?) the day?
You can edit the sweetness and go crazy on the toppings and it's still going to be relatively healthy!! Maple syrup and fruit are your sweeteners, the caramelisation on the bananas are an added explosion of depth and deliciousness.
Such a luxurious bowl for breakfast and yes, you are worth it. Plus it only takes about 15 mins to make!
PREP TIME 5 MINS | COOK TIME 10 MINS | TOTAL 15 MINS
1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 cup oats
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2-4 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup coconut milk (or any DF milk)
