Banana and almond porridge

Porridge recipe - A Free From Life

I was never a fan of porridge. Partly due to the texture, partly to the fact I don’t really like milk either.

This porridge recipe has converted me though. I love it!

It’s our ‘set you up for the day’ breakfast and the great thing about this recipe is you can make it your own by adding any combination of fruit and nuts.

This is a warm breakfast that will fill you up and start you out on the right foot. It doesn’t take long to make, as you can prep it the night before. However, if you don’t have time, you might like to try making these overnight Bircher pots that you can take to work with you.

I’ve included all the fruit you might need to add to your porridge in the ingredients section below.¬†You don’t need to use all of them at once. Some ideas of fruit combinations have been included in the instructions section.

Instructions
  1. Make the night before: Measure the oats, milk and vanilla into a bowl, stir and leave in the fridge
  2. In the morning: Put the porridge in a large pan with the almond butter, coconut oil and mashed banana and heat on a low to medium heat.
  3. Add more milk to the porridge to stop it from sticking to the pan and keep adding to make it the desired consistency (I don't like mine too thick!)
  4. For the fruit toppings, try the following combinations: 1. Stewed apple and pear with cinnamon, 2. Strawberries, blueberries and bananas, fresh or stewed, 3. Apple and strawberry puree (you can make these the night before and re-heat, or make in the morning and serve hot over the warm porridge)
  5. Plain natural yoghurt also goes well with the porridge and fruit
Recipe Notes

The variations are limited to your imagination, using the same base porridge.

Overnight oats - A Free From Life

Adding the almond butter, gives the porridge a protein boost, which along with the oats, will help keep you fuller for longer.

Soaking the oats overnight makes them easier to digest. It also means they take less time to cook and you end up with a smoother, creamier porridge, not the gritty, lumpy stuff that, if you're like me, put you off eating it.
