This recipe is one of my favourite porridge recipes. It takes 10 minutes in total and whilst it looks and tastes as indulgent as a gooey chocolate brownie, it is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and slow energy releasing ingredients and protein, such as coconut oil and almond butter
I like to head to the gym in the morning and this is a great protein boast for when I get home. Mr. B. is less mobile in the mornings, but since this breakfast imitates the elements of a dessert, it is great motivation to coax him out of bed!

1 cup rolled oats
5 cup water
1/8 tsp. salt
¼ cup almond milk
1 tbsp. almond butter
1 tbsp. melted coconut oil
1 tbsp. cacao powder
1 tbsp. maple syrup
Add the oats and salt to the water and bring to the boil
Turn down the heat and stir until it reaches a creamy consistency
Stir in the almond milk and butter
To make the chocolate, stir the ingredients together and drizzle over the oats
Apologies for the delay in posting, I have been so tired this week that I have been falling asleep whilst reading in the evenings and waking up with print on my forehead!
In order to keep my energy levels up a lot of 10 minute meals were required and today I am posting my favorite of the week; Swordfish Zaatar.
Swordfish Zaatar is an easy recipe, with a beautiful fragrant aroma and a dense nutritional profile.
It is a good fish for those who don’t like fishy fish, with its meaty texture and mildly sweet flavor. It has over 33g grams of protein per 6 ounces in addition to a healthy dose of magnesium and potassium.
4 Tbsp. Zaatar
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 large swordfish steak (c. 6 ounces)
If you can’t find pre-mixed Zaatar, make your own by combining the following;
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano
1 Tbsp. sumac
1 Tbsp. ground cumin
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
Take the swordfish out of the fridge and pat dry
Rub on/cover with oil
Sprinkle both sides with zaatar mixture, pressing firmly to coat
Place on a tray lined with baking paper
Cook for 10 minutes at 350c or until cooked through
If cooking on a BBQ grill, should only take around 3 minutes either side
