Winter Warming Porridge

On cold autumn and winter mornings I find myself craving a nice warm bowl of porridge. Oats are loaded with fibre and have cholesterol lowering properties. They are also a low GI carbohydrate which means that they help to keep your blood sugar levels stable and keep you feeling fuller for longer. I like to add some fresh or frozen berries for some antioxidants and walnut for essential Omega 3 fats. A delicious, healthy way to get you started on a frosty winters day. 

Prep Time:  5 mins                                                                           Yield: 1 serve


  • 1/2 cup of Oats (Gluten free if possible)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries (frozen is ok)
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 tbsp of crushed walnuts
  • 1 tsp Bee Pollen (optional)


  1. Prepare to cook with love. 
  2. In a breakfast bowl, place your frozen berries. They will thaw a little while you cook the porridge. 
  3. In a small saucepan add the oats and almond milk. Stir to combine. 
  4. Heat on a low heat with the lid on, stirring regularly. 
  5. Cook the oats for about 5 minutes and until the mixture becomes thicker. If you like your porridge milky then you could add more milk at this stage and heat for 1 minute. 
  6. Remove from the heat and pour your steaming hot porridge over the partially thawed berries. 
  7. Sprinkle on top the coconut sugar, walnuts and bee pollen. 
  8. Let it sit for 30 seconds to 1 min while the berries cool your porridge enough for you to eat and the hot porridge thaws out the berries and makes them nice and juicy. 
  9. Mix the porridge, berries, nuts, sugar and pollen all together with a spoon. 
  10. Eat and enjoy!
