  • 50 g porridge oats
  • water (as needed to cook the porridge)
  • 1 tbsp raisins (organic if possible)
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 brazil nuts (chopped)
  • half of a banana (sliced)
  • 1 tsp cacao powder
  • date syrup (according to taste)
  • 1 tbsp almond butter


  • Add oats and raisins together with some water into the small saucepan.
  • Cook the porridge according to the pack instructions. Add more water if needed while it's cooking.
  • The porridge shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to cook. Stir constantly to avoid porridge sticking to the pan.
  • Once the porridge is cooked, add it to a cereal bowl. Add cacao powder and stir well.
  • Slice a banana and put it on top of the porridge. Add the rest of the ingredients: chopped brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, date syrup and almond butter.


Use coconut milk such as the one from Koko to improve the flavour.
