If you follow my recipe account, you'll know I'm obsessed with porridge. I don't go a morning without a steaming bowl of porridge and they're never the same! I like to vary the textures, flavours and colours as much as possible. As it's getting cooler and darker, I thought you'd like a little porridge recipe to get stuck into too. So comforting and indulgent. Just what you need first thing in a morning to wake up too.
Ingredients - serves one
55g plums, chopped
1 tsp maple syrup
50g rolled porridge oats
1 tbsp cacao powder
pinch of salt
200ml almond milk
2 tbsp coconut yoghurt
1 tbsp crunchy almond butter
a quarter of an apple, finely sliced and cut into sticks
0.5 tsp toasted pumpkin seeds
0.5 tsp toasted sunflower seeds
Pop the compote ingredients into a small pan over a low heat with a splash of water, boil until soft enough to mash into a puree and then leave to thicken slightly.
Pour the porridge ingredients into another small pan and stir over a low heat until thickened.
Pour into a bowl.
Dollop the almond butter and yoghurt on one side of the porridge bowl and then pour the compote onto the other.
Top with the apple sticks and toasted seeds.
