I’ve invented a new meal and it’s called “Lorridge”.

Lorridge is lunch porridge!

And this chocolate chip banana coconut porridge is the first lorridge! Ha ha!

Give your kids a healthy chocolate breakfast treat like this chocolate chip banana coconut porridge this weekend. It’s suitable for big kids too! 😀

No, but seriously now folks Lady Lynne and I think this is a fantastic bowl of porridge to have for your lunch / brunch, especially after a gym routine because this chocolate chip banana coconut porridge takes just 5 minutes to prepare and 5 minutes to cook. Plus the fast digesting carbs and protein will soon be rebuilding those muscles broken down during your workout session.

Also, this is a really fantastic tasting, lower calorie indulgent chocolatey treat that I know you’ll love and look forward to during your workout, as Lady Lynne and I do!

So, where did this recipe come from?

Well, I decided to make this a recipe after the success of the Mary’s Meals recipe made for world porridge day 2016 as this is close to the one we put together for that post.

That was a fun recipe to make, as this one is too!

Chocolate Chip Banana Coconut Porridge Notes

  • I used coconut milk as it’s sweeter, but on trialling this recipe I also tried skimmed milk and it was fine, although not as sweet.
  • Add honey / agave syrup to make it sweeter if you want, or if you use skimmed milk.
  • To make this recipe vegan, ensure the cocoa powder and chocolate chips are pure dark alternatives containing no milk.
  • The portions made in this recipe are quite large, designed for a post workout meal or treat brunch for 2.
  • This recipe would easily serve 3 people if not served as a post workout meal or treat brunch!

Well folks I’ve been fortunate enough to have a week off this week and to enjoy several bowls of this chocolate chip banana coconut porridge by having a later morning workout. (Great excuse! 😉 ).

It’s also given me the time to work on my free simple soups e-book which is now 95% complete and I’ll send that out to existing subscribers at the end of December and launch a promotion for new subscribers to receive it in January.

Catch you next week with a new curry recipe.

Enjoy your lorridge!

Lorridge. 😆 I’m so funny. Not!

  3. Haha – Neil, I so love having this bowl of deliciousness for “Lorridge” – or even for dorridge (dessert porridge?) – though Lorridge sounds way better than dorridge does!
    I’m sory I’ve missed a bunch of your posts – but am super excited to hear about your soup ebook! Looking forward to it! Happy Friday my friend! Hoping you are enjoying this week off!

      This lorridge would be absolutely perfect for dorridge as well Shashi, I agree! Ha ha! 😀

      No need to apologise for missing any of my posts, I know you’re very busy working on making a success of your full time blogging career and I’m so excited for you about that!

      Just back from some winter’s hillwalking so hope to post a few of those pictures in a couple of weeks.

  4. I had lorridge yesterday! Mine wasn’t so fancy, though 😀 I was totally craving oats, and I had a salad and protein, but for my carbs, I was just like, nnnneeeedddd oatmeal. #hitthespot
    And YAY for a soup eBook! You know that I love some soup, and I never make it because I am useless. Now I can pretend that I am going to 😀

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      The more I talk to people about lorridge, the more people are telling me they do actually have it for lunch too, so I’m not feeling so alone anymore, and I’m glad you’re a fan too!

      Thanks for the comments about the eBook. I promise that you would be able to make any of these soups, they’re so simple. 🙂

  5. Husband would LOVE THIS! LOVE THIS I TELL YOU! I would probably enjoy it too if I could eat it!!!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Ha ha. Brilliant GiGi! That’s the first time you’ve said “Husband” here, it was always fiancé before, but now of course you’re married aren’t you?

      Congratulations to you again, Lady Lynne and I are so happy for you both!

      Oh, and thanks for your comments. Please do feed your husband this! He could eat your portion too? 😀
