Silvia Tornaghi

Have your brownies and porridge all-in-one for a healthy breakfast! This is a great way to use up leftover oatmeal porridge. they are loaded with healthy ingredients and a couple of these will get you through the day. They're so light with half the calories of regular brownies, but taste so rich. They even make their own frosting. They make a scrumptious snack too! If you don't make porridge you could soak 1/2 cup of oatmeal in one cup of water overnight or for a few hours. It's worth the try!
