Peanut Butter Biscoff Porridge

If you’re in the market for a recipe that adds a few hundred extra calories to a breakfast staple for no reason other than a fondness for deliciousness, you have come to the right place. I’ve been eating this for breakfast almost every day for just over a month. The biscuits give it a cakey consistency that is either going to be very much up your street or make you hate me a little bit. Please do keep me posted. The peanut butter in conjunction with the seeds and oats make this a proper slow release energy, full until at least 11-11.30am breakfast situation. (I’m not gonna say full until lunchtime because I don’t believe that anyone is ever truly full until lunch, they’re just resisting the urge to have a Kit Kat at elevenses, which is entirely different.) The closest comparison I can give this is to the Dorset Cereals gingerbread porridge sachets – if you like those, you’ll have a lot of time for this. Serves 1: 1/2 cup porridge oats 1/2 cup …

Vegan Carrot Cake Porridge

Vegan Carrot Cake Porridge

OK so I’m finally really, really, for realsies embracing autumn now. I’ve put fairylights next to the fridge. There are little ornamental pumpkins sat by the window behind the stove. We watched both The Deathly Hallows Pt 1 and The Deathly Hallows Pt 2 on the trot last night. The next logical step? Cake for breakfast. Yes, if we’re going to be inside and damp and miserable, we might as well just constantly treat ourselves. That’s the way this season goes. Never ending self indulgence to make up for how sodding dark it is. In my defence, this porridge isn’t even really that cakey. I’ve not added sugar – apart from the sultanas and mixed peel – and I’m sure it’s probably a relatively sensible first meal, what with the chopped nuts and the oats that’ll slowly release energy throughout the day. I mean I won’t look into its nutritional value too keenly for fear of disappointment, but there are certainly less healthy starts to the day than this. This recipe is coming at you …

The Perfect Porridge | Peach & Pistachio

Last week I introduced you guys to the #PerfectPorridge campaign with a lovely coconut and pineapple combo, which went down swimmingly with everybody except for my Grandmother, who for some reason thought it was an appalling idea. This week, I’ve decided I’m heavy into alliteration (peach, pistachio and porridge, in case that wasn’t clear) for another subtly sweet and relatively cheap breakfast bowl. You might be able to tell from a few of my recipes lately (cherry bakewell fairycakes for example) that I’m suddenly using canned fruit a lot more. This is because budget-wise it’s way friendlier than the fresh stuff, and from everything I’ve read there’s no harm in it – correct me if I’m wrong! Don’t forget to send me a tweet or tag me on Instagram if you make either of my #PerfectPorridge recipes, or if you come up with a #PerfectPorridge of your own! 1 cup Flahavan’s Irish organic jumbo oats 1 cup soya/almond milk (you can of course use dairy) 1 and a half cups water 1 can peach slices 1 …
