Sorry for the pun. As ever my yokes are eqqstraordinarly bad.
Since it’s Easter I thought I’d pull out all of the stops and make a truly eggsessive breakfast. And yes, I know it’s now Easter Monday but I was too hungover for a chocolate breakfast yesterday… Health wise I would definitely not recommend you eat this more than once in your lifetime. Happiness wise I’d recommend eating it every day. On balance maybe keeping it as a yearly Easter treat is a good compromise.
This bowl doesn’t just have delicious Easter toppings but the porridge itself was also influenced by the ingredients of a Simnal cake. I’d totally recommend the basic (but tasty!) oats recipe as a scrummy and more balanced everyday breakfast when you don’t feel you can justify the addition of the creme and mini eggs.
Just look at the amazingly gooey creme egg that you get if you can cope with waiting for it to melt slightly (it’s worth it!)!!!!!!
1 Large handful of oats
150ml Almond milk
50ml Fresh orange juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1.5 tsp sultanas
1.5 tsp chopped, dried peel
6 Mini Eggs
1 Creme Egg
Mix the oats, sultanas, peel, cinnamon and milk in a bowl and add a dash or two of water if needed.
Microwave for 2 mins.
Stir and pour in the orange juice before microwaving for another minute.
Decorate with the creme egg and mini eggs.
If you have the patience, leave for a minute or two allowing the chocolate to slightly melt before tucking in!
As always please let me know what you think and hope you all had an egg-sellent chocolate and porridge filled Easter.
