Cacao Porridge

By: Edward Jacobson from
Cacao Porridge
Cacao Porridge

"Porridge is a perfect, healthy way to start the day and an absolute classic British breakfast. It’s my go-to breakfast for cold mornings (which is pretty much everyday in England). We’ve made this one using our slow cooker as we find it’s easier to prepare it the night before so we have more time in the mornings and we prefer the taste as it becomes super creamy. If you don’t have a slow cooker though and want to try it for yourself you can simply soak your oats in milk overnight in the fridge then cook in the morning and you’ll still achieve the creaminess. We wanted to try and create a breakfast option that both adults and kids can enjoy but with heaps of nutritional benefits. This cacao porridge definitely does the trick. We’d recommend adding the cacao one teaspoon at a time, to ensure the flavour isn’t too rich. Hope you like it!"

160 what? We don't use the metric system in the United States. What does this translate to? One cup?
