This porridge is definitely one of my favourite breakfasts of all time. Pretty big statement, I know. But once you taste it, you’ll see where I’m coming from! It is just so ridiculously creamy and sweet, it warms your whole body up like a big cuddle with every mouthful!
Creamy Coconut Porridge with Cinnamon Stewed Apple
½ cup rolled oats2 or 3 tablespoons coconut milk 1 cup boiling water1 teaspoon cinnamon1 green or red apple (I prefer green, but whatever floats your boat!)2 teaspoons coconut oil or butter1 teaspoon brown/coconut sugar (optional)1 teaspoon pepitas (pumpkin seeds)1 teaspoon sultanas/raisins/1 date chopped upA couple of walnuts broken into pieces
Peel and cut your apple into bite size pieces. Put to one side.
Place your oats, coconut milk, and boiling water in a pot, stirring often to ensure a beautiful, creamy consistently.
In between stirs, place your apple pieces into a frying pan with the coconut oil/butter, cinnamon and coconut/brown sugar (if using) and stir everything around until the apples are evenly coated, caramelised and soft.
Continue stirring the oats until you have your desired consistency. I like mine creamy, but not gloopy! It should have some texture, but not cooked until it’s stodgy. (Unless that’s how you like it! No judgements here.)
Pour the oats into a bowl and top with apples. Sprinkle with sultanas, walnut pieces and pepitas and enjoy!
