Comforting Cacao, Banana & PB Baked Oats

Its that time of year when its a little hard to get out of bed in the mornings, when the puffer jackets and woolly jumpers come out and we start craving wholesome nourishing foods. Nothing says winter breakfast more than porridge. This is a spin on the classic porridge that can get a bit tiresome. These comforting cacao, banana & PB baked oats really hit the spot on those chilly winter mornings and make for a really nourishing and nutritious breakfast as well.

The combination of cacao, banana & PB make this breakfast taste like an indulgent dessert. Oats are a low GI carbohydrate and keeps you feeling full for longer, stabilises blood sugar and contains a good amount of fibre and protein. Banana’s are loaded with potassium, great for heart health. Cinnamon has blood sugar stabilising properties and is anti-inflammatory. Now chocolate solves a LOT of problems but it is even better its raw form, cacao powder is full of antioxidants, magnesium and iron. The chia seeds offer a protein hit, as does the peanut butter, keeping you full for longer and helping with muscle repair and replenishment. So enjoy this comforting bowl of oats to nourish without guilt!
