We are already a week into the New Year... wow that's crazy!
Are you feeling the winter blues, the back to work grind, the positive motivations struggling a little now the routine has kicked back in? Well I might have something to help put your world right and make those goals a little easier.... a rich, creamy and warming bowl of chocolate peanut butter fudge porridge.
Perfect for chilly winter months
Perfect for Christmas indulgence transitions
Perfect when you only have 5 minutes to whip up a snack.
Do you remember these fridge fudges bites?
Well these form the basis of this breakfast snack bowl. The recipe came about by total accident when I ws visiting family over the holidays. I had taken a container of my fudge bites for a sweet treat to satisfy me when others were eating regular sweets and desserts, but I had forgotten to take supplies for breakfast. There were oats in the cupboard but i/ve never been a huge fan of porridge made with plain water- not quite creamy enough my me.
So then an idea popped into my head... make a bowl of porridge with oats, water and a couple of fudge bites. Winner!
Use boiling water and the porridge will be ready within 5 minutes, the fudge notes melt through as the last cook, and the result is a sweet and creamy bowlful. You cold of curse top with a banana for an extra boost, but I kept it simple with cacao nibs (I repeated the experiment when i got home for the photos!)
Change up the flavours of there fudge for a twist. I made this salted PB version a while back, and also this chocolate walnut version for The Real Food Source here, and there is also an almond butter versioning their free Nut Pastes Book that I created.
So many options!
Recipe: Chocolate peanut butter fudge porridge
- 1/2 cup regular porridge oats
- 1 - 1/2 cup boiling water (to achieve desired consistency)
- 2 small fudges bites (approx 2-3 tbs worth)
Add all ingredienta to a small pan and cook gently on the stove, stirring constantly to cook the oats and melt that fudge bites through the mixture.
The porridge should be ready to serve in five minutes- I like this served super thick, but simply add extra water in the last minute of cooking if you prefer. My porridge was sweet enough as it was but you could add a fruit topping or a little sweetener of choice if needed.
