7 + Plant Points


  • 80g porridge (we used Bio&Me Super Seedy & Nutty Porridge)
  • 30g brown rice flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 250ml milk of choice
  • Mashed banana (about 1 and 1/2 large bananas)
  • 1/2 tsp almond butter
  • 3 Medjool dates
  • 50g dark chocolate, melted (ideally 70%)


  1. Preheat oven to 160C/gas mark 3.
  2. In a large bowl combine the porridge, brown rice flour and baking powder. Pour in the milk and mix until just incorporated.
  3. Mash the bananas using a fork (or place them in a food processor) and add to the bowl with the almond butter. Mix well until everything is well incorporated.
  4. Grease a donut pan and spoon the batter into the pan, fill about 4/5 of the cavities.
  5. Bake for 15-17 mins in the preheated oven, until they look golden brown.
  6. Let cool at least 15 mins before removing them from the pan. If you try to remove them too soon they might crumble. Top with the melted dark chocolate and enjoy!

Despite what you might read, there is no evidence that you need to avoid seeds (unless you have an allergy). In fact, it’s the opposite, the research suggests they are beneficial!

Seeds are rich in fibre, which is SO important for our gut health – it’s our microbes’ favourite nutrient and most of us aren’t getting enough.

Many of these tiny little seeds are also filled with ‘good’ fats and omega-3, protein and other important minerals. Read more about…why seeds aren’t ‘bad’ for your gut.
