OVERVIEW

Serves: 1

Prep: 15M

Total: 15M

Difficulty: easy

For the Porridge

80g of oats

100ml of brown rice milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla powder

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

½ teaspoon of ground ginger

Sprinkle of ground nutmeg

5 tablespoons of pumpkin puree

2 teaspoons of coconut sugar

For the Toppings

1 apple

1 teaspoon of coconut oil

1 teaspoon of maple syrup

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

40g of pecans

Method:

If you are making your own pumpkin puree, simply peel the pumpkin, roughly chop it into chunks and steam for 25 minutes until soft. Then blend it in a food processor until totally smooth.

To make the topping, core and slice the apple. Cook the apples and pecans with the coconut oil, maple and cinnamon in a pan for about 10 minutes, until the apples are soft but still holding their shape.

While the apple cooks, make the porridge by placing the oats in a saucepan with 200ml of water and brown rice milk, place the pan on a hob and cook for 4 minutes, stirring continuously. Add in the spices, pumpkin puree and coconut sugar and cook for another minute.

When the porridge is cooked, spoon it into a bowl and top with the delicious apples and pecans before serving!
