Healthy Low-Sugar Chocolate Porridge

True story - I HATE PORRIDGE. I've always tried to like it but I've never been able to eat more than a spoonful before wanting to spit it out - there is something funny about the texture. But chocolate porridge turned out to be a completely different story!

Basically what this proves is - put chocolate in anything and it becomes amazing.

When I first tried chocolate porridge I based it on a few recipes I had seen using bananas, brown sugar, and milk etc. And while it turned out yummy, the texture was still rather odd for me, and all the extra sugars (even though they were fruit sugars) meant I was deviating from the healthy low-sugar breakfast I wanted (and it was becoming rather calorific).

But with some experimentation, I've managed to come up with a much better version that doesn't compromise on taste. It's now a breakfast I really look forward to. It's a bit like eating a healthy pudding but with none of the guilt and all of the fuel you need to keep going all morning (you know what I'm like - no rest for the wicked).

So, here is my healthy, keeping-it-low-sugar, chocolate porridge recipe!
