Salted Caramel Porridge

May, 2019

Sometimes you need a little indulgence in the morning. What's better than just a sweet tasting breakfast? One that also provides you with lots of fibre, healthy fats and calcium. Did you know that tahini (made from sesame seeds) is a plant-based source of calcium?

Salted Caramel Porridge

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quick oats (porridge oats)

  • 1 cup milk of choice

  • 3 dried dates

  • 1 small banana, sliced

  • 1 tsp maple syrup
