I have to admit that I have a very serious addiction to porridge! I crave it all the time and secretly wish that I could eat it for every meal every day, that’s how much I love it. I just love how warming and soothing it is, it’s like eating a giant hug. Plus it’s so creamy and you can top it with all your favourite things to create something insanely delicious. I normally add banana slices, fresh berries and lots of almond butter, plus some cacao nibs and pumpkin seeds for a little crunch!
This porridge recipe is an absolute saviour for those of you that have busy mornings as it only takes 3 minutes to make – how amazing is that! It also means that there’s now no excuse not to eat a beautifully healthy and energising breakfast every day. The secret to this recipe being so easy and speedy is that we soak the oats in boiling water for ten minutes, during this time you can get dressed and ready for the day while the oats soften perfectly. After those ten minutes the oats are soft enough to eat, so all you need to do is heat them up and add your toppings, which only takes three minutes – it’s like the best, healthiest instant porridge!Serves 2
– 2/3 of a cup of oats (100g)
– 2/3 of a cup of boiling water (200ml)
-1/3 of a cup of almond milk (100ml)
– Almond butter
– Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and cacao nibs
Start by placing the oats in a saucepan with the boiling water, stir it together and then let it sit with the lid of the pan on for 10 minutes.
Once the oats have soaked and are soft, place the pan on a hob and heat it up with the almond milk for 3-4, stirring it every minute or so.
Then serve with your favourite toppings.
