Chocolate Peanut Butter Porridge

Thick creamy chocolate porridge topped with natural delicious peanut butter!

I make chocolate porridge a lot because I love to start my day with something a little natural sweetness. And the versatility that comes with chocolate is that you can mix up the toppings and what better to drizzle on top of porridge than lots of peanut butter?! I'm quite open to peanut butter brands, especially the ones that don't use any palm oil and are 100% peanuts. Recently I discovered this amazing peanut butter in Tesco called Nuts about Nature - not entirely sure if it's Tesco's own brand but it says it's made in the Netherlands - and the price tag is so much better than some of the other brands on the market. I find it can be quite hard to find a good creamy, natural peanut butter that isn't below £2.50 but Tesco's have done it. We haven't used anything since and I highly recommend! I just like to give a little brand boost every now and then haha :)

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 3-4 minutes
Serves: 1

NOTE: every ingredient I use is vegan so make sure you check your ingredients if you're following a Vegan lifestyle.


40g Porridge oats
1 tbsp Cacao powder or chocolate protein powder
200ml Soya milk
1 tsp Vanila extract
1 heaped tbsp Peanut butter 
Cacao nibs


✿Add the porridge oats and cacao powder to a bowl and mix. Pour in the soya milk, mix and then place in the microwave for 3-4 minutes on high making sure to stir half way. Be careful the porridge doesn't explode and spill over, this can happen!
✿If you prefer to cook on the hob/stove, adjust the cooking times accordingly.
✿Once cooked, spoon the peanut butter on top and add the toppings. You may need to add more soya milk if you like a very wet porridge. Enjoy!
