Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal/Porridge

A really simple idea I use almost every morning, it's really filling and slow-release energy as well as providing antioxidants and feel-good serotonin from the cocoa, and it curbs cravings for chocolate. I find that even if I have plain porridge in the morning, I still seem to want something sweet, whereas with this I don't and it only has a few more calories than plain. It's also really quick to make, which is a bonus because I never seem to have enough time in the morning! I do also make it as a snack when I need chocolate, or even sometimes as dessert. You can add almost anything to it- cinnamon, almond, vanilla, chilli...whatever you feel like. Give it a try and see what you think!
