Cinnamon Infused Peachy Porridge

October 19, 2015

A Pinch of Bella - Peachy PorridgeI’m a huge fan of porridge, and could quite happily eat it for every meal. It’s incredibly versatile and a nutritious way to stay fuelled until lunch time. Inspired by the change in seasons, this autumnal bowl of goodness is the ideal breakfast to enjoy whilst tucked under a fluffy duvet on a lazy Sunday morning. It’s deliciously creamy, comforting, and guaranteed to make your morning peachy fine. A Pinch of Bella - Peachy PorridgeA Pinch of Bella - Peachy Porridge

Ingredients:

For the Mylk:
1 x cup of almonds soaked overnight
2 x pitted medjool dates
1 x teaspoon of cinnamon
3 x cups of filtered water

For the Porridge:
1 x cup of oats
1 x ripe peach
1 x teaspoon of coconut oil

Toppings:
A small handful of chopped almonds
A sprinkle of cinnamon
1 x tablespoon of maple syrup

Step-by-step:

1. Blitz your soaked almonds, dates, cinnamon and water in a blender.
2. Strain the mylk using either a muslin cloth or a strainer (I love how the residue nutty texture really complements the oats, so I just used a strainer allowing the tiny chucks of almonds to sneak their way into the mylk).
3. Using the same pot that you’ll use to cook your porridge, soak the oats in the nut mylk for about 10-15 minutes, allowing the beautiful flavours from the mylk to be absorbed into the oats.
4. Whilst the oats are soaking, slice the peach into small wedges (about 0.5cm thick). Heat the coconut oil in a small pan on a medium-high heat and lightly sear the slices on both sides. Put aside.
5. Heat up the soaked oats on a medium-high heat and cook for about 5-10 minutes until the oats are soft and creamy.
6. Scatter the brazen peaches onto your porridge bowls, and serve with maple syrup, chopped almonds and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Serves 2.

    Yummy! My bowl of oats porridge has always been rather boring. Now, there´s that element of excitement.
    Oats is the foundation of health, your mylk (love your new word) is liquid health & your peaches are – just peachy!
    This one is…..´a pinch of peachy´

    I’ve finally started with morning porridge, (and feeling so much better for it!) and was looking for ideas to have a bit of variety from my regular banana, cinnamon and honey ‘basic’ version, so tomorrow all the ingredients for this are going on my shopping list! Would actually make it for dinner right now if I had the ingredients!
