I’ve been eating this for breakfast at least every other day for the last few weeks and it’s been making me so happy! As the weather gets colder and we move into Autumn I love having soothing, warming breakfasts that set me up for a happy day. This is a wonderfully easy porridge recipe, it’s so quick to cook and it uses just 4 ingredients, so you can throw it together in no time. The great thing is that it looks and tastes much more impressive than it is, so you can serve it to friends and look like a domestic goddess!


1/2 a punnet of blueberries (about 100g)

40g of porridge oats (quick cook oats)

200ml of brown rice milk or any other plant based milk

1 red apple


Simply place the blueberries in a saucepan with a splash of boiling water. Let them bubble for 5-10 minutes until the blueberries are soft and juicy

Grate the apple – you can leave the skin on for this

Mix the grated apple, oats and brown rice milk in a saucepan and cook for 3-5 minutes, until they’re hot and creamy. I use porridge oats as they cook really quickly, you can use the same recipe with regular oats but you’ll need more liquid and they’ll take longer to cook.

Once the compote and porridge have cooked mix them together and enjoy!
