Chocolate Orange Baked Porridge

Baked porridge for breakfast! The recipe uses cacao powder, orange zest and orange segments (the flesh) to create a super chocolatey and citrusy breakfast. 


  • No oranges? Try with kiwi, clementines, pomegranate, grapefruit, plums or cherries. 
  • No maple syrup? Use honey or golden syrup instead. 
  • No cinnamon? Try with ginger powder instead.
