Porridge with dates, raspberries and pumpkin seeds

Healthy can be luxurious as in this autumnal porridge. Dates provide a natural sweetness but one that is still sticky and a bi naughty. Pumpkin seeds add fibre, good fats and texture and a mix of freeze dried and fresh raspberries provide a dingy freshness with some tartness to complement the date's sugar.

50g of porridge oats
250ml of coconut milk
Handful of finely chopped dates
Handful of pumpkin seeds
A teaspoon of freeze dried raspberries
2 handfuls of fresh raspberries

Combine and mix the oats, milk, dates, seeds and freeze dried raspberries. Give it a good stired.

Microwave on full power for 2 minutes. Give it a good stir and leave for 1 minute.

Microwave on full power for 1 minute, 30 seconds, give it another stir. Leave to harden up to your desired consistency.

Top with the fresh raspberries and enjoy!
