Porridge is one of my new favourite things, there’s so much opportunity for experimentation! I used to think porridge was bland and I could never finish a bowlful, but that’s because I didn’t know what to do with it. Here’s a recipe for my newest porridge combination, it’s absolutely divine! Think lemon curd flapjack but totally healthy!
30g porridge oats
15g chia seeds
Juice of half a lemon
Grated zest of half the lemon
A handful of mixed raisins and sultanas
Enough coconut milk to co
er the oats in your bowl (use any nut milk)
A drizzle of local honey
1 tbsp of almond butter
Choose an oven proof bowl and add in the oats, chia seeds, and raisins. Pour over coconut milk until it just covers all the ingredients. Now add the lemon juice and zest, honey and almond butter and stir through. Leave to soak for at least 10 minutes (or prepare the night before for a quick breakfast), and add more milk when the levels go down.
Preheat the oven to 180c and oven bake the porridge for 10 minutes.
Optional: serve in a pretty bowl and top with flaked coconut, enjoy with a nice cup of white tea or homemade smoothie! 😉
