If you’re a traditionalist you might not like the following recipe. It’s a little bit crazy and a little bit different. It’s kind of like the cool younger sister of someone proper. It’s the indie chick of all porridges. (No idea where that just came from)
Anyway, it’s also chock full of nutritious goodness. And there’s only natural sugar involved (thanks to the banana and coconut)!
- 1/3 c oats
- 1 tbsp desiccated coconut
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 sliced banana
- 1 cup water or milk (or both)
- 1 tbsp nut butter
Combine all ingredients apart from nut butter in saucepan and bring to near boiling. Immediately reduce heat and let it simmer for a few minutes until it starts thickening. Do not forget to stir! Once desired consistency is reached serve with a dollop of nut butter that will then beautifully melt into the porridge.
This breakfast has a lot of substance and you won’t go hungry until lunchtime.
I think I don’t have to explain why I’m eating porridge in JULY. But despite all the rain, a good bowl of porridge is so comforting – it immediately makes me happy.
What’s your go-to breakfast on rainy days?
