Jamie Oliver’s Chocolate Porridge Greek Yoghurt and Fresh Seasonal Fruit

Here's the Chocolate Porridge recipe from Jamie Oliver's Super Food Family Classics book and Channel 4 TV show. This cereal mix can be made in batches up to two weeks ahead - that's breakfast sorted!

From the book


Quality cocoa powder creates a luxurious feeling of comforting chocolaty goodness here, but without all the sugar and saturated fat we’d get from actually adding chocolate to the mix. Takes 20 minutes to make.

200g blanched hazelnuts
200g Medjool dates
400g porridge oats
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 heaped tbsp quality cocoa powder
1 orange
For each portion:
200ml coconut water
1 heaped tbsp Greek yoghurt
80g fresh fruit, such as raspberries, blackberries, sliced banana, grated apple and pear, segments of orange
1 pinch of ground cinnamon or quality cocoa powder (optional)

Essential kit

You will need: a food processor


Toast the hazelnuts in a dry pan on a medium heat until golden, tossing often, then tip into a food processor. Tear the stones out of the dates and add the flesh to the processor with half the oats, the vanilla extract and cocoa powder. Finely grate in the orange zest and pulse until fine, then stir the mixture back through the rest of the oats. Pour into an airtight jar, ready to use.

When you want a portion, simply put 65g of the mixture into a saucepan with 200ml of coconut water and heat gently over a medium-low heat for 3 minutes, or until it’s the consistency that you like, stirring regularly and adding splashes of water to loosen, if needed. Serve each portion with a spoonful of Greek yoghurt and 80g of fresh fruit. It’s also nice finished with
a pinch of cinnamon or a dusting of cocoa, if you like. And remember, if you up the number of portions you’re cooking at one time, simply adjust the cooking time accordingly. Chocolate porridge – how cool is that!

Get ahead and batch it up: Make up a batch of this dry porridge mixture and it’ll keep happily for up to 2 weeks, making your brekkie routine super-easy.
