Perfect Porridge

The perfect porridge is an art form. Seriously, there are competitions for it. This is why I am putting up a recipe; anyone can chuck some oats in a bowl add some milk and put it in the micro, but real porridge is so much more special. You cannot beat that heart warming bowl on a cold morning, knowing that it is not only delicious but super nutritional too. Its all in the making…


Ingredients (serves 2)

100g traditional oats (no quick mixes)

600ml whole milk

1/2tbsp coconut butter (click to see recipe)

1tbsp chia seeds (optional)

1/2tsp cinnamon (optional)

1tsp coconut oil (optional)

To Serve (all optional)

Berries (any from blueberries, raspberries or strawberrys)

Coconut flakes

Dollop of nut butter

Nuts (whatever takes your fancy!)


  1. Place all your core ingredients into a pan over a high heat
  2. Stir continuously, whilst the mixture simmers, until thick
  3. Pour into a bowl and add toppings

I never said its rocket science, but always do it on the stove to ensure its creamy and delicious!
