Warm Your Mornings With This Cocoa Hazelnut Butter Porridge Recipe

Nippy mornings require a warming brekkie, and porridge is the definitive warming brekkie. Sure, you might have experimented with muesli or some other fanciful cereal during the summer, but come September it’s time to turn back to porridge. This is Britain after all – you can expect a chill in the air every morning until next June.

However, plain porridge can start to wear you down with blandness if you have it every morning. So instead, view basic porridge as a blank canvas and add all manner of other ingredients to keep your morning routine interesting, and indeed delicious.

RECOMMENDED: Healthy Breakfasts Worth Getting Up For

This porridge recipe from Meridian Foods, purveyor of a superb range of nut butters, is a great place to start if you’re looking for some breakfast inspiration. It adds cocoa hazelnut butter and orange to create a truly memorable breakfast – and it takes just ten minutes to make.

The below ingredients are good for two servings, so if you’re looking to make a friend at work it’s ideal. And if you have enough friends already, you can just have a massive breakfast. And if this recipe turns you into a porridge obsessive, it’s worth trying these three other recipes.
