A bowl of porridge is a classic breakfast, thanks to its high fibre, vitamin, and mineral content which help to energise your day and keep you fuelled until lunch time.
Our baked banana and dark chocolate porridge recipe is a step up from your ordinary bowl of oats, both in flavour and nutrition. We’ve baked the oats with banana and chocolate for a nutritious and delicious combination.

We’ve then topped with Greek yoghurt and honey for a dessert like finish that’s higher in protein than your standard bowl of oats.
