See recipe card for quantities.
- Cooking Oil Spray - you could use a little olive oil instead.
- Porridge Oats - Just ordinary rolled oats. Don't use quick oats. Use old-fashioned oats / steel-cut oats only. Or use gluten-free oats.
- Dark Chocolate Chips - use dark chocolate which is more of a healthy chocolate with healthy fats as opposed to milk chocolate.
- Ground Cinnamon
- Peanut Butter - use a smooth creamy peanut butter only. Preferably sugar free. I like to use a natural peanut butter.
- Greek Yogurt - you could use regular yogurt but Greek yogurt has more protein, less sugar and a thicker consistency for cooking with.
- Skimmed Milk - use an alternative milk of choice if you like. Coconut milk, oat milk, cashew milk or soy milk would also work.
- Honey - you could use maple syrup instead.
- Large Egg - if you're making this vegan you can use a flax egg.
