Anyone who knows me will know my breakfast is the same every morning; eggs. I LOVE eggs. I normally have 2-2 eggs scrambled with a few oatcakes or brown toast and I rarely deviate from this formula.
However, recently I have been craving the comfort of porridge. When I’m trying to eat healthier than usual (aren’t we all in January?) I do well to have more varied breakfast options to keep me motivated. So I thought I would share my favourite porridge recipe which is dairy-free, although you could of course use regular milk if you prefer.
50g of porridge oats
unsweetened almond milk
dash of orange juice
mixed nuts and seeds
teaspoon of manuka honey
I like to soak my oats either overnight or just while I’m getting ready. Cover the oats with a little almond milk and orange juice and leave to sit for 10 minutes. Cook on the hob for 5-6 minutes adding more almond milk to get the consistency you like. Once cooked, pour into a bowl and add your preferred toppings. I went for mixed nuts, seeds, cinnamon and honey. My other favourites are bananas, pomegranate seeds and raspberry jam.
What’s your favourite January breakfast?
