7 warming ways with oats for winter breakfasts

There’s nothing quite like a steaming bowl of oats to warm you up from the inside out on those chilly winter mornings. Here are seven of our favourite ways to eat oats for breakfast.

Chocolate oat porridge

The perfect excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast, this porridge will start your day off just right. Swap the almond milk for any milk of your choice and use peanut butter instead of soya, if you like.
