Recipe: Chocolate Banana Protein Porridge

You can never go wrong with protein oats. I’m yet to try zoats (putting courgette in oats – I know, I’m still unconvinced), but I go through months on end where I make this every single morning. Here is my favourite chocolate banana flavoured protein porridge recipe!


I hadn’t been a big porridge fan before I discovered this, as I found it quite tasteless and the texture off-putting. However, when I discovered this combination, my mind was totally changed. I love this breakfast post-gym with some added chocolate protein powder (my protein smoothie works fab for this too if you want something more refreshing), or on a cold morning when I need something nourishing and warming to keep me satisfied until lunch.

You need:

  • 40g oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use 25g Missfits or 1 scoop Idealfit chocolate – you can use my code SPELT10 for 10% off – this is also a commission link FYI!)


  • 1 teaspoon maca powder


  1. Pour the oats into a saucepan and pour in the milk and water slowly. Stir.
  2. Chop up half the banana and stir it into the saucepan.
  3. Add the cacao powder and cinnamon.
  4. When it’s at your desired consistency, turn off the heat and add the scoop of protein powder.
  5. Put it in a bowl and serve with the other half of the banana, some cacao nibs and chia seeds!
  6. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoy this recipe – do you have any go-to breakfast recipes?
