FEED ME: pimped chocolate oats

I’ve always been about taking a dish and making it healthier but as a mum navigating through the difficult toddler years, it’s become even more important. Don’t get me wrong, Bella has some healthy (and odd) favourites – avocados, raw cauliflower, raw mushrooms and any kind of fruit – but if she had her way, her diet would consist mainly of mac and cheese, chocolate, fries and lasagne (after scraping out all of the meat sauce).

So here is a breakfast with extra healthy goodies that still feels like you’re having something dessert-like and indulgent for breakfast. It’s been pimped out to give her extra nutrients like magnesium, sulfur, vitamin C and omega fats.

Serves 1-2

(As always, try to keep everything organic – better for you and better for the planet)


1/2 cup oats (instant or whole)

1 cup water

50g vegan dark chocolate (min 70%), broken into pieces

1 tablespoon cacao

1 tablespoon hemp seeds

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon honey

Any non dairy milk and berries (frozen or fresh), to serve


  1. Cook the oats with the water in a saucepan.
  2. Take the oats off the heat, add the chocolate and stir to melt.
  3. Stir in the cacao, hemp, chia and honey.
  4. Put in a bowl and add berries and milk. Devour.
