Suggested toppings; 1 banana 1 tsp chia seeds 1 tsp bee pollen small handful of activated nuts (fancy word for nuts soaked overnight which makes them easier to digest)
Add all dry ingredients and 1 cup hazelnut milk to a jar (plastic containers disintegrate into food so use glass). Soak overnight. The next morning add this to a pan with 2 cups hazelnut milk. Simmer on a low heat for 10 mins, stirring regularly. Meanwhile, cut the banana in half lengthways, sprinkle with cinnamon and fry on a low heat for 2 mins. Turn up the heat for the last 30 secs so it goes caramely and slightly crispy. Once the porridge has reached a rich a creamy consistency, add to a bowl, top with banana, chia seeds, bee pollen and maple syrup.
