This is the ultimate Christmas breakfast. I have been absolutely LOVING this Christmas Oatmeal this entire festive season and can’t wait to have a big bowl of it on Christmas morning!
Oatmeal porridge is so cosy, warm & comforting and can be deliciously nutritious too.
This special Christmas porridge is refined sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free & soy-free AND it’s also a healthy, well balanced breakfast. This recipe contains healthy essential fats, healthy plant-based protein and good carbs.
It’s perfect to enjoy during the festive season or throughout the year (it’s never too late or too early to enjoy a little taste of Christmas), I hope that you love it as much as I do because I love it a lot!
