Did you know? This Super Porridge contains approximately 25% more energy and a third more fiber than regular porridge just cooked with milk.

The benefits: Chia seeds are a good source of fiber, protein and omega 3. The added coconut oil gives the dish an energy boost and the oats have a low glycemic index, which means they provide a slow release of energy. Oats also contain a soluble fiber called beta-glucan which can help reduce cholesterol levels.


  1. Place the oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, coconut oil and milk into a medium size pot.
  2. Cook over gentle heat until the porridge boils and thickens, stir constantly.
  3. Divide between the 4 bowls, top with sliced banana rounds, a drizzle of honey and the shaved Macadamias.
