You’re committed to start your day the healthy way. Real food, hearty, nourishing breakfast – perfect to kick-off another morning in unicorn and rainbow la la land. As you do.
Only then boredom gets in the way.
What, porridge again? No way, Jose. I think I’ll skip breakfast, starve myself until lunchtime when I’ll finally stuff my face in not so clever carbs.
Well then, this recipe is the answer to your oatly prayers. You’ll never think of porridge the same way again.
I should know: I didn’t even like porridge before I tried this recipe. But then I found my porridge soul at Martilicious Healthy Breakfasts and Snacks workshop.
Oats may sound terribly unexciting but they’re one of the original superfoods. Packed with fibre, vitamins and antioxidants, it’s a whole grain that packs a serious nutritional punch. They’re also naturally gluten free, if that’s something your tummy struggles with.
Martilicious, my official twin and awesome Portuguese healthy food blogger is the brain behind this amazing recipe. I stole the recipe from her and I’m now standing before you wholeheartedly pretending it’s mine.
Ahah. You know me: minimum effort, maximum impact.
Seriously ladies, this is the way to go to upgrade your oats. Soul food with a fruity twist that will get those taste buds dancing, hummm… So going for it.
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 grated pear
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp honey
- 250ml pear juice
- Iswari Fruits of Love seed mix (buy it here)
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer until you’re happy with the consistency. Think happy thoughts while stirring and enjoy the amazing smells…
Serve with grapes and sprinkle with Iswari Fruits of Love (gotta love the name, ladies – well done marketing team).
Want to change it up and keep it exciting?
Option 1: Swap the pear for banana puree or grated apple to change up the flavours. You can even have chocolate porridge using one banana and one tbsp raw cacao powder.
Option 2: If you fancy fresh overnight oats instead? Simple: stick to the same recipe but leave the mix in the fridge overnight (or at least 8 hours) instead of cooking it.
