Blood oranges and pomegrates are just 2 of the jewels of Winter produce. The orange-raspberry flavour of the blood oranges go really well with the sweet, juicy pomegranate seeds. Adding a few cubes of dark chocolate to the warm porridge and allowing it to melt gives a luxurious chocolate orange mix! Seeds and dried fruit add a little crunch and extra sweetness and lots of nutrition.
Not a bad way breakfast to wake up to in the morning 😉

Blood Orange, Pomegranate, Sunflower Seeds & Cacao Porridge Oats
- 1 cup jumbo oats
- 2 cups water
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1-2 cups plantbased milk
- 2 cubes dark chocolate
- 1 handful mix of dried fruit and seeds
- 1 tbsp raw cacao nibs
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1 blood orange peeled and sliced
Place the oats in a container with a lid, add the water and apple cider vinegar, stir well and leave to soak overnight. You can leave to soak at room temp or in the fridge.
The following morning, drain the oats in a sieve and rinse under a running water.
Add the oats to a pan, cover with milk, add a lid and simmer gently for about 5 mins. Turn off the heat and leave to continue soaking in the hot milk for a further 5 mins. This will help to really cook the oats through but prevent over drying or burning.
Add the oats to a bowl and add all the toppings.
Add all of the toppings and serve!
