Porridge is my all-time favourite food; I could live off porridge alone. Rolled oats are cheap and keep you full for a long time; the options for toppings are endless.
I like to start my day with a good breakfast to keep me satisfied all day long.
Being vegan I like to make sure I am getting enough protein; with this recipe I add chia seeds and peanut butter as they are both high in protein.
If you use a fortified milk you will be meeting your daily recommendation of vitamin B12 which is important for vegans and those on plant based diets.
If you don’t like chia seeds feel free to leave them out and reduce the liquid to 400mls.
Start your day off right with this porridge!
Makes 1 serve
500mls of milk of choice or water – I use almond milk
½ cup of rolled oats
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
½ cup of frozen berries defrosted
1 tablespoon of smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 spoonfull Coconut yoghurt
The night before: in a 4 cup measuring jug add the milk of choice, rolled oats and chia seeds, stir.
Put the jug in the microwave and cook on high for five minutes keeping an eye on the microwave for the last minute to avoid overflowing.
Take the jug out of the microwave, cover with cling wrap and let sit for five minutes. Put in the fridge overnight.
The morning: take porridge out of the fridge and return to the microwave and heat on high for another five minutes.
Once done, add the toppings, stir and enjoy – careful it will be hot.
Feed your happiness today.
What you put in; shows on the outside.
