Deliciously Ella’s chocolate porridge

''On a cold winter’s day, this is heaven. It’s thick, rich and creamy, with a sweetness to each spoonful that feels indulgent – but not so much that it doesn’t work for the mornings.'' – Ella Mills

Serves 1

Prep Time 5 min

Cooking Time 5 min


  • 40g gluten-free porridge oats
  • 1 heaped tsp cacao powder
  • 1tsp almond butter
  • 1tsp coconut sugar or maple syrup (optional)
  • 100ml coconut milk alternative (or other dairy-free milk, such as oat or almond)


  1. Pour the porridge oats and cacao powder into a pan, then add the almond butter and coconut sugar or maple syrup, if using. Add the coconut milk and stir to mix everything together.
  2. Cook the porridge over a medium heat for 3–4 min, stirring, until it thickens and goes a dark, chocolatey colour – you can add more milk if you need to.
  3. Pour the porridge into your bowl and sprinkle with any healthy toppings you want to use.
