I want to go on the record that I don’t think chocolate for breakfast is particularly healthy, but if you are going to have chocolate for breakfast, working it into this super-grain porridge is a good way to go. The grains are cooked with hazelnut milk, so it’s like Nutella, minus the palm oil and the bread you smear the Nutella on. If you don’t have all four grains on hand, use whatever combination of grains you like, as long as you start with 1 cup uncooked grains.

"The Scots have been enjoying their porridge for centuries, and rightly so. Made from oats, which are one of the few grains that grow well in Scotland's climate, Scottish porridge is tasty and nutritious, and it's also packed full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. As part of a healthy diet, it's a great way to help reduce cholesterol, and the slow-release carbs mean it keeps you full (and full of energy) until lunchtime." — Scottish At HeartThis recipe is courtesy of Scottish At Heart.
Porridge is a popular dish in Korea often served as the first meal of the day or as a snack.
