Banana. So starting with the most obvious topping for any breakfast, I’ve found that a banana (or even half) is a great way to add some substance and sweetness to my porridge. I like mine on the more brown side of things when it comes to ripeness for that extra comforting mushiness.
Peanut Butter. Despite it being very dangerous to have in the cupboard (especially when you’ve had a bad day and have a spoon at hand), peanut butter is a good way to get in some protein. I just need to work on my own will power and try not to each the entire jar at once.
Dark Chocolate. Being a sweet-toothed sugar fiend, I’m constantly craving a chocolate fix. Top tip: try peanut butter and dark chocolate together – thank me later.
Dates are fast becoming my go-to porridge topping and afternoon snack (although i’m still working on that portion control, they’re just too good!). They might look a bit gross but taste just like toffee.
Granola. Sprinkling my porridge oats with some granola adds an extra crunch and makes the meal 100% more more satisfying.
Nuts Nuts Nuts. Just bare in mind that they are quite calorie dense – admittedly I have a huge habit of overeating this ingredient.
Protein Powder. Okay, maybe this one doesn’t take too much like dessert but if you work out and hate the taste of protein powders like I do, its the best way to get it down! I simply stir in a scoop of chocolate protein powder into the pot.
What do you like to have with your porridge?
