Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Swap This

You could substitute the chocolate for cocoa powder, but you may need to adjust the sweetness. You can also use fresh cherries for the porridge instead of frozen.

You can make this on the hob if you prefer. Just put the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Quick, easy & filling.
I used honey instead of granulated sweeteners. I also used frozen forest fruits, instead of cherries.
