Sweet Carob Porridge

This has been such an indulgent treat for me lately, the perfect comfort breakfast. It is creamy and sweet, and still has that little hint of chocolate. This bowl topped with some nice nut butter of choice has certainly been one of my go-tos lately, as it warms you up as well as providing you with lots of plantbased energy for the day ahead.

For the first time in my life I am really noticing how my appetite changes accordingly to the season. Now it seems kind of obvious to me, but just a year ago this was not something I really gave any thought. Now I am more aware of what my body craves, and I believe those cravings most of the time is a way for my body to tell me what nutrients it needs. It is getting colder and colder outside, and a warm bowl of porridge has been my favourite breakfast lately, as I honestly can not stand the cold.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients and dates in a medium sized pan.
  2. Add milk and water and stir.
  3. Cook on medium/high for 5-10 minutes or until it thickens to your desired porridge consistency.
  4. Serve in a bowl and top with your favourite toppings. Here I used natural peanut butter for some healthy fats, banana and cacao nibs for that extra chocolatey crunch.

* This protein powder is quite sweet. Using a different chocolate protein powder is very likely to change the final result. However, an additional tablespoon of carob powder would work instead of the protein powder.

** If you do not have carob powder you could use cacao or cocoa powder with a small amount of sweetener of your choice (Such as maple syrup, agave nectar or coconut sugar).

*** If you do not eat soy then almond milk works really well in this recipe.
