The nutritional benefits of oats are outstanding. They are rich in vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B and E, iron and magnesium. Magnesium and vitamin B are both particularly important for strong nerves - perhaps why those Scots explorers who ate porridge daily were so intrepid?
- Make your base porridge (I like half milk or milk alternative with half water) with a teaspoon of coconut oil added during cooking to make more creamy and add flavour.
- Layer with cacao nibs, chopped apricots, chia seeds, sliced banana and chopped pecans.
