As you might have guessed already I am a huge porridge fan. Due to my oat intolerance, my porridges are always based on millet. Millet is one of the oldest cereals and was already used as food by nomads and semi-nomads in the Stone Age. Millet is a very good source of iron and magnesium. In terms of iron, it ranks among the leaders in comparison to other cereals. The valuable cereal contains two to three times more iron than wheat and thus makes an optimal contribution to blood formation.
Besides porridge, my second food passion is chocolate and peanut butter. So I thought why not combine it with a yummy, heartwarming breakfast during cold mornings. The cocoa powder contains tryptophan and cheers you up as well. So I would say a good excuse to eat some chocolate in the morning.
Chocolate Peanut Porridge
- 80 g Millet Flakes
- 350 ml Almond milk or any other plant-based milk you like
- 4 tbsp Maple Syrup
- 3 tsp (Raw) Cocoa Powder
- 2 tbsp Peanutbutter
Put all ingredients for the porridge into a pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes until it is nicely smooth
Put the warm porridge into your bowl and decorate it with the toppings of your choice.
My favorite toppings are: extra peanut butter, some chocolate chips, and fruits.
