A breakfast worth getting out of bed for.

Baked cacao & clementine oats.

Indulging in a slow, warming breakfast is the only way to start a dark, wintery January morning.


2 clementines, peeled

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp cocoa powder (no nasties)

1 tbsp peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla paste

½ tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp maple syrup

150 ml milk of choice




Preheat the oven to 180 C.

Zest and segment the oranges.

In a mixing bowl, combine the orange zest, oats, chia seeds, cocoa powder, nut butter, vanilla, cinnamon, maple syrup and milk.

Mix well with a wooden spoon.

Leave the mixture to thicken for 5 minutes, then mix in half of the orange segments.

Pour the mixture into a small baking dish and place the orange segments on top. 

Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with toppings of choice to give you an added and needed energy boost; try pumpkin seeds, honey, sprinkle of orange zest and a dollop of yogurt.
